Throwback boardshorts have returned, again. After a long dark period of below-the-knee boardshorts many-a-boarsholigists were convinced that the next logical step would be an influx of “shant” style trunks, which would then escalate quickly to the surf pant- lead and popularized by Matthew McConaughey’s fine linen pants. Fortunately, good sense prevailed, and the proverbial tide shifted the other direction. As surfers noticed that they could maximize both bottom-turn AND bronzing potential, lengths began to shorten, and all was good in the world. Spearheaded by the tragically hip Southern California longboard posse, Alex Knox, Aussies, and Mitch Buchannon, these logo and length-light styles have trickled down into surf scenes across the globe. Old dudes everywhere are kicking themselves for finally just catching on to the “hip 22’s”. Oh, flap-doodle!
