Vans Surf team rider Alex Knost has been part of the Vans family for over 14 years. His inimitable style and unbridled creativity inspire generations of talented creatives, from surfers, artists, musicians, designers, and the list goes on. Forging an indelible mark on the Vans Surf program, Knost has established himself not only as a pioneer of his craft, but an integral voice in honing Vans’ evolving surf identity. This August, Vans proudly announces Knost has officially joined the global Vans apparel program.
Part of the Vans family since 2006, Knost is most commonly recognized for his eclectic style, both in and out of the water. From making art and collaborating with fashion labels, to creating music with his band, Tomorrow’s Tulips, and handcrafting his own boards through his personal label, he has a deep influence that extends beyond surfing alone.
