Find the right material for you.

PHANTOM STRETCH

Phantom fabric stretches in four different directions. Board shorts with Phantom stretch deliver the most flexibility of any board shorts we offer.

STRETCH

Regular stretch fabric stretches in two different directions. It's still flexible, Just a title less than our Phantom material.

SUPERSUEDE

Not stretchy, but incredibly

soft and comfortable.

LENGTH

Length is a matter of personal perference. Learn what our different outseams mean for you.

SHORTER

This shorter length (16"-17" Outseam) keeps your board shorts from catching on your knee while surfing, swimming or doing anything else in the water.

STANDARD

This mid-length (18"-19" outsteam) still keeps your board shorts from catching on your knees, but serves those who like a little more coverage.

LONGER

This longer length (20''-21'' outseam) protects the knees from rash or abrasions when you’re in the water all day.        

 

WAISTBANDS

The piece that ties it all together.

HYPERFUSE

The Hyperfuse waistband is like having no waistband at all. Made of one continuous piece of stretch fabric, it is reinforced with a heavier piece of material fused to its interior, locking it onto your waist.

HYPERWEAVE

How do you define comfort? Well, the Hyperweave waistband is a good place to start. Designed with a singular, woven construction, Hyperweave technology reacts to your every move, creating an adaptive fit that’s as comfortable as it is lightweight.

SEWN

Our standard waistband construction, the sewn waistband is our simple and effective solution to keeping your board shorts in place.

CONSTRUCTION

How board shorts are put together and why it matters.

WELDED

Welded seams are used in lieu of a standard, sewn stitch. These seams are fused together via heat, creating a surface that’s flush with the skin to reduce chafing.

STITCHED

Just like it sounds, the stitched construction will show a stitch visible to the naked eye. For this construction, a flatlock stitch is used for durability and to create a flush surface with the skin.

OTHER

EZ FLY

Our patented, Velcro®-less closure system. Utilizing soft, stretchy fabric in lieu of Velcro®, the EZ Fly closure eliminates the possibility of chafing.

DWR

DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating placed on all Hurley board shorts. This flouropolymer-based coating, typically found on waterproof rainwear, repels water so your board shorts stay light and dry quickly.

SIZING

Most Hurley Men’s board shorts feature a fixed waistband for the best fit. This means your board short size will be the same as your pant size.

ALPHA TRAINER SHORTS

The most versatile short we make. Designed for the water, the land, and everything in between.
