Boardshorts For The Next Generation
February 24, 2009


 Systematic, hydromatic, ultramatic… why, these boardshorts could be grease lightning!

In this modern age of high performance everything, it was only a matter of time before the term could be applied to surf trunks. Mind you, your average beach tourist won’t know and won’t care. All they’ll see are the flashy prints and think, “Dang, those sure will look sweet with my Teva’s!” But to the dedicated surfer who wants every session to be all-time, progressive technology is a necessity. And it all comes down to which boardshort offers the most strength and stretch. You’ll hear words like, hyperstretch, psychostretch, flex appeal, and learn more than you ever wanted to about Lycra. Within the last few years a handful of brands have even been able to incorporate top quality recycled materials, simultaneously allowing you to give Mother Nature a high-five while shredding her apart.

If it sounds like boardshorts on steroids, you wouldn’t be far off. Our selection of performance enhanced trunks were designed to give you more bang for your buck. Including Rip Curl’s WLP Next Strikeline, the signature series from 2007 ASP World Champion and 2009 title contender, Mick Fanning. Now in it’s third season, Mick’s boardshort was one of the pioneering models that launched the revolution.

But at the end of the day, whether you’re a veteran or just starting out, it’s pretty cool to think about all hot action you’re now getting in your shorts.
