With its high-end clothing and extreme athletic gear from brands such as LRG, O’Neill, Volcom, and True Religion, Axis can outfit customers for vertigo-inducing half-pipe descents and action-packed drives to the mall. Make waves at the beach in a bikini ($40–$120) or a pair of board shorts ($39.95+), or don a pair of True Religion jeans ($168+) to comfortably cover sand-blasted limbs. Sandals ($5–$50) attractively bedeck toes, and snazzy sunglasses ($60–$180) protect eyes from too much sunlight and wearers from showing too much emotion during Beach Boys songs. The distinctive fashion-and-sports outfitter also lets buyers purchase boardwalk-ready longboards or boardwalk-unnecessary snowboards, or cruise by their collection of level-4 tanning beds.
