The High Performance Boardshort Is The Surf Industry’s Biggest Crime
But here are ten that are palatable!
By 2018, we will stop talking about the high-performance boardshort. Stretch will retire; comfort will remain. Like the wetsuit, the boardshort–as far as tech goes–has reached its pinnacle. Next year’s model will be more of the same.
But don’t be glum! Summer is in full swing in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s hot, the water’s warm and the waves are occasionally fun. But, who cares how good the surf is? Surfing in trunks is life’s greatest joy! And, style comes in many flavours. So we introduce you to our ripping arrangement: A collection of boardies that are sworn to make you boost higher and carve harder.
So, here’s another selection of Stab endorsed trunks to line the beach, pool, catch the condensation from the bottom of your Mojito with… Or better yet, perform in.
