I've never owned a pair of fashionable bathing trunks- especially the kind that tie in the front. It is a bit of an odd transition from the other pull- up kind, but I have ada…

Look good, while treating your lower torso to a little stretchy ecstasy. These shorts are very light, durable, and dry in minutes. The only con in is that the pocket is a bit…

Great quick dry material, solid construction and styling.

About Men's Boardshorts and Bathing Suits:
The reason why these are some of the best boardshorts for sale online should be readily apparent to you. Need a hint? Unlike other companies, the boardshorts we sell are made out of comfortable textiles rather than planks of wood.
Hilarious observations about boards aside, these really are some of the coolest boardshorts that you are going to find. If you are doing watersports or even just hanging out at the beach or the pool boardshorts are a great way to let everyone around you know that you are a pretty cool guy.
I remember the first time I got a pair of boardshorts. I was tired of my traditional swimming trunks and my girlfriend wanted to get me a new bathing suit since summer was fast approaching. We were walking through the store and I was blown away to find that there was swimwear featuring velcro, a drawstring and no inner netting. It was like trying on your first pair of boxers, an exhilarating freedom that bordered on the terrifying. The freedom went very quickly to my head and I rushed out of the department store and dove head first into the fountain at the center of the mall.
I was never allowed back in that mall, but they let me keep the boardshorts and, since I was wearing a pair with pockets, about 6 dollars in change that I was able to collect before the security guard could find a net big enough to capture me and end my nautical adventure.
