HISTORY OF INNOVATION Phantom isn’t just a boardshort, it’s a gateway to peak performance. Tested by the world’s best in every oceanic condition, in pursuit of one goal: to make every session lighter, faster and more flexible.

PHANTOM IS BORN
PHANTOM 120 Until this point, innovation wasn’t in the lexicon for surfwear. That all changed when Ryan Hurley and VP of Innovation Bruce Moore applied the lightweight, stretchy fabric used by Nike swimmers in the 2004 Olympics to boardshorts. Rob Machado stretched it over his foot in the first ad and the Phantom boardshort was born.

MADE TO FLY P120 FLYWIRE Hurley’s Innovation team took a cue from Nike Track and Field’s revolutionary and space-saving Flywire Tab, applying it to the boardshort closure. The Phantom 120 delivered a streamlined wear with minimal bulk. SUSTAINABLE PERFORMANCE In 2010, Hurley began repurposing plastic bottles and turning them into premium Phantom fabric. All Phantom boardshorts are now made from recycled plastics – an average of 12 bottles per pair.

SCIENCE MEETS ART PHANTOM 4D Searching for the next leap in boardshort innovation, the Hurley Innovation Team pinpointed the waistband as the new frontier. Utilizing Nike Flywire technology, a biomimicing waistband was created, enabling unprecedented fit and performance. Featuring a geometric print by famed artist Dalek, the Phantom 4D represented a fresh new space where striking art and performance-enhancing innovation combined for something greater.

GUIDED BY INSIGHT JJF II Designed for the world’s most elite surfer. Built to withstand the heaviest conditions. In the next effort to solve John John Florence’s needs in heavy water, the Hyperfuse waistband was created. Composed of a single continuous piece of stretch fabric with a reinforced interior waistband, the Phantom JJF II was engineered for locked-down fit in the ocean’s most powerful conditions.

THE NEXT
PHASE IN FAST
HYPERWEAVE Dynamically comfortable. Impossibly light. Hurley’s
greatest innovation leap since Phantom, the Hyperweave
waistband was comprised of a single woven layer taken
directly off a loom as a complete piece. Free-floating
magwires were placed throughout the waistband, reacting
to movement for an adaptive fit when generating speed
down the line. This revolutionary, single-layer construction
replaced the traditional boardshort fly closure for 50% less
bulk and maximum comfort when lying on a board.
