The Board Short Guide

We spent years developing our bestselling men’s and women’s board shorts - testing stretch, strength, and how quickly we could take them from the beach to beers without sitting around waiting for them to dry. Here, we cut it down to an under-5-minute read filled with all the need-to-know details.
