Boardshorts done better

Royal and black are the printed hawaii style. solid colors are the blue and charcoal

The ‘Primitive’ style is fashioned after an old pair of ‘Primitive prints’ I had in the garage. The fit is very similar. If these prove to be popular we will add the flambouyant 80’s style in 2018. Enjoy!

Easy to match colors in a 17″ INSEAM which fits below the knee like the O.G. volley shorts. We continue to lead the way with our simple and functional boardshorts design built specifically for an athletic frame (read all about it here). Durable, super stretchy and soft is the name of the game with our new Mid-weight 4-way stretch material. We have found if the material is too light it doesn’t drape or fit well, too heavy and its hot and wont wick sweat properly. We took the middle road and it worked, slightly heavier than last year and a little added stretch where it counts.

How much do they need to cost?

We try and keep our boardshorts under $55, while  the competition is retailing for more like $70. We do this by working closely with our fabric supplier contacts, friends that we have made over our 20 years in the boardshorts business. We make major purchases of fabric when they are on special and stock them in our factory in Mexico. We use production time in the off season when its cheapest, and stock product until the summer. Building a quality  surf short is one of the most difficult pieces in the biz- lots of seams and cutting. Its not cheap to do and cutting corners is not an option for any top tier brand. Our mission is to create the best gear in the biz.

Try them and send them back if you don’t love them!

Its true! Return them if you don’t love them!
