The Tide Is Turning
We demand more from our boardshorts than ever before. No longer confined to the sea, we have developed a range of hybrid shorts that take you from the land to sea and beyond.
After surfing came back from near extinction in Hawaii and rippled up west coast of America and around the globe to Australia by the early 1900s, surfers have been in constant search of the perfect boardshort. The fashion has evolved over the years, but many of the basic materials have remained the same for years – until recently.
Designed for land and water adventures, our shorts will take pretty much anything you throw at them. The quick dry material and two-way stretch make them ideal for spontaneous travel and life on the road – whether you’re scoring waves, jumping into rivers and lakes, hiking through the cool of the forest or taking on afternoon trails.
What we love about hybrid shorts is the philosophy behind them. As humans, we’re not designed to do only one thing. We don’t need different items of clothing fine-tuned for every activity. Sometimes you need to travel light, strip back the clutter, and focus on what’s really important. This is one pair of shorts that can do it all.
Blurring the lines between land and sea, our hybrid shorts are made for hanging out in the van or chasing waves. Lightweight, fast drying and durable, with mesh pockets and elasticated waist, this travel essential is designed for a new era of adventure.
The two-way stretch fabric and super fast dry time make these ridiculously comfortable for taking a dip and riding waves. With a longer 19” leg and fixed waist, this is a modern take on a classic boardshort, plus the freedom to wander on land.
Our focus this season was to develop a range of shorts for women that are true all-rounders. Designed to take your from the land to the ocean, from kicking around the campsite or heading out into the warmth of the evening, these are the ultimate quick drying travel shorts – get them wet, chill on the beach, wear them every day.
Understated and deceptively simple, the Sundowner has a cotton/polyester blend for the right balance between travel and casual summer wear. The classic styling and elasticated waist make them a comfortable hybrid for wearing on land and in water.
The two-way stretch polyester gives you a quick drying time and the freedom to move, whether it’s paddling out and dipping in or roaming the shores in search of adventure. These lightweight and quick drying hybrids are a travel essential.
