Order board shorts online: a few recommendations
Board shorts are mostly wide cut, so they offer you enough legroom to perform your tricks properly despite high temperatures. However, there are differences that you should be aware of when buying your new board short. Based on your knee, you can basically distinguish between three cuts. The decisive factor is the length.
Board shorts end either below your knee, on your knee, or above. The standard is usually 18", which is just above the knee. You can find the outside leg length in the product description of the respective board short. So when buying your boar dshort, make sure they don't restrict your performance and that they give you enough room to move.
Board shorts - function meets design
In addition to looks, board shorts should be functional too. Water-repellent and quick-drying fabrics, 4-way stretch for flexibility and the often sewn-in functional mesh are just a few of the features that board shorts come with. The shorts are completed by back and side pockets as well as the elastic waistband with drawstring.
However, board shorts aren't just about functionality. There is also plenty of room for different designs and colors. Originating from surfer fashion, many board shorts are still reminiscent of the lifestyle. You can often find bright colors and playful designs, but there are also simple variants with discreet details.
