Unique and Just Right!

Gave these recycled board shorts as a gift and they were a hit! Great quality and they look amazing on him!

Perfect Fit for Husband

This was a gift for my husband who recently picked up surfing, and he can't recommend them enough! Especially the pocket and the side tie.

Great shorts!

I don't surf, but I love the beach and I like to cover up so these shorts work great for me. The pocket is so convenient, they are very comfortable and it feels good to use something that is made from recycled plastic. Very happy with this choice.


I’m just gonna throw it out there, I had this “side tie” idea a few years ago...and I soooo stoked that somebody went out and just did the darn thing. They are comfortable for lounging around, and stretchy when you’re doing activities. A great all around pair of boarshorts. I’d even consider wearing them with an Aloha shirt to a party

Best board shorts ever

Hands down the best board shorts I’ve ever owned. You don’t realize how much better it is having the tie on the side until you lie down on your board. The pocket is in the perfect place, holds all my wax and snacks securely. And the best part, they look dope. That Hawaiian print is just so sick.
