Volcom Fiji Pro -Boardshort Shootout In the surfing arms race, you're only as good as the gear -Trunks are no exception


All Photos c/o Brian Bielmann. All Styles Available at SWELL

King Slater retook his front row contest parking spot (yes, they actually assign parking by rank) with 4 perfect rides to win The Volcom Fiji Pro at flawless Cloudbreak. He threaded throaty tubes with ageless agility in his high performance Quiksilver Brigg Boardshorts. The 4-way stretch surf trunks has a 20 inch outseam that falls just above the knee to prevent ballooning and hang-ups. Get Slater’s Boardshorts.

Nat Young
put in his bid for Rookie of the Year by locking in double barrels and buzzer beater wins…except when playing b-ball with seabass. He and bunk mate Kolohe Andino rock Hurley’s Block Party with the iconic stripe and rash free stretch comfort. Shop a dozen colors here.

fijitajTaj’s last second loss to seabass in rd 5 woulda been a victory for others, but Taj trains his ass off all year in his high performance Invert Boardshorts by Billabong. Taj aptly goes inverted, and so should you here.


Jordy Smith came in as a comp favorite with his full bag of tricks, and he bagged some smoking tubes with heavy rail work ta boot. His 5th place finish keeps him in the hunt for a word title, and he’ll surely flare up in the Hyperfreak shorts at Karamas next week.

fijijoelParko was gone fishing,  missing the first round, but fought back for a quarter final finish. Joel logged nearly perfect heat scores, walking on water with Billabong Transverse’s Water repellent coating that eliminates absorption, friction and rashes.


The Battle of Americans staying on Tavi vs Aussies Staying on Nomotu has been settled, and Slater added another giant check to his trophy room. Get all the island inspired apparel from the event sponsoring barrel hounds at Volcom and get a free pair of sunnies.volcom-highwear
