AMBSN Home Boardshorts They don't just have cutting-edge style... they have a sense of humor

The AMBSN favorite is back, and the HOME volley shorts have pledged allegiance to party.   Co-founding brothers Dylan and Dustin Odbert know how to have a good time, and that fun-loving spirit is in every handmade pair.    These California kids took this patriotic style to the next level with a contemporary cut and silicon washed microfiber suede.  AMBSN were the first in the action sports industry to push short style towards shorter and slimmer cuts, and this roached elastic waist short is an instant classic.

They took the same humorous approach to their ad campaigns, posting a parody of American Apparel in Vice Magazine. This spoof ran on the back cover, while the American Apparel ad graced the inside cover. The AMBSN ad campaigns always entertain their young, well-dressed demographic who get super pumped on ridiculous trends like Movember’s mustache grow-a-thon.

The shorts have a 16 inch outseam, new-wave low-rise fit, and contrast back patch pocket with a metal eyelet drain. Traditional tie and Velcro closure, and supreme-suede fabric make this your surf-hard, party-hard summer essential.

We love seeing these guys cruising around San Clemente, and they rip at skating and surfing.  Get your California made HOME Volleys here

Behind The Brand: AMBSN

New wave nostalgia, reinventing retro, respecting the classics and working for the weekend. These are the mores behind the Spring 2012 AMBSN clothing line, and has put them on SWELL’s best-sellers list all season long.

Watch SWELL’s first installment of “Behind the Brand” and learn about the inspiring story that founded this company.

To escape the pitfalls of certain tired styles in surfing, the AMBSN bros took their late 70s Impala for a dude-cruise up the entire Ca coast this spring. They found inspiration in salty old beach towns and timeless rolling landscapes. The results yielded an uncommon, yet much needed breath of fresh styles.

The two brothers who started the brand strive to think outside the box, source uncommon fabrics, revive rare templates and embody the complete California existence. Here’s a few favorite products going nuts in the SWELL surfshop.

Halfner Tank: Simple sea foam tonal coloring with signature AMBSN color blocking. Get it Here

Nana Surf Trunk: The 80’s ripper “thrilla gorilla” is an international icon of shred-tastic proportions. Thanks for bringin him back boys.
ambsn nana surfUppers Tee: If you haven’t noticed, AMBSN’s signature color-blocking rocks, and a tee without a pocket is just a damn rag. Get it now!
