    There are a lot of good boardshorts out there, O'Neil makes several nice pairs with a good stretch, something that is missing slightly in these.

    But... These are quite good & still have a slight stretch to them. If you're in the 50% who insist that board shorts require no underwear underneath, you'll be happy to hear that the pattern on these does a great job of camouflaging your manhood ;) - Something that not all boardshorts succeed at.

    NOTE: You should look at an up-close image of the pattern - it is actually made up of many small shapes that look slightly different up close than in thumbnail on this page.


    - Recycled material
    - Lightweight, breathable and comfortable
    - Slight stretch

    - No fabric flap in fly
    - The two velcro clasps in fly aren't very strong, but not super necessary when drawstring is properly tied.

    The main reason for this purchase was the color and stretch of this short. They fit nicely around the waist and are comfortable. They stretch nicely, I use these for CrossFit and thats why the stretch is important.

    I was not happy with the length of these, they are a little on the short side. I prefer board shorts to fall about mid knee, these are a little above the knee. I also didn't like the closure. The tie front is good but, there are two round velcro circles to hold the rest together. Wish it was fully closed in front and the tie just held it together.

    For your money I feel like there are a few other brands that do a better job, but I do like the look and feel of these. Probably won't buy another pair though.

    Slightly narrow, but that happens with all fitted board shorts. I really do appreciate the stretchy quality of the fabric as it makes taking them on/off much easier. The fly has 3 velcro circles to secure it, which isn't bad but not terrific. I'll be buying these again.

    My son already had a pair of Billabong boardshorts and ne needed a second pair. I ordered the same size and they were sized consistently. He's tall and has a small waist; adult small just did not fit right, so these fit perfectly.

    These Boradshorts were a gift for an 18 year old- he said they are really comfortable. I would recommend them-huge hit!

    This Board Short has a gorgeous mint color and it's design is the best!!! But this one is bigger than other size 34.

    Very Comfortable.

    These things are waayy brighter in real life. Perfect for finding your husband in crowds while on vacation or at the beach. Impossible to lose him!
