How To Care For Boardshorts

Keep them out of direct sunlight.

Exposure to the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays may cause your boardshorts to fade at an accelerated rate. Keep them in the shade whenever possible.

Always air dry.

Electric dryers can put a beating on your boardies and cause irreversible damage to the fabric.

Wash on gentle.

Seriously — does this look like a good way to treat your boardshorts? Be better.

Store in a cool place.

Overexposure to heat can melt your boardshorts. To ensure longevity, make sure you store them in a cool place — preferably a party, a barbecue or a beach with friends.

On a serious note, sunshine…

We hope you care for your boardshorts as best you can. Really, we do...but we also want you to live in them. Fully live in them. So, go ahead. Bounce them off the reef at Pipeline. Tear them climbing a barbed wire fence in pursuit of some mysto wave in Guatemala. Spill foreign substances on them at a seedy bar. Take chances and have fun. Boardshorts don’t last forever, but they are capable of creating stories that do.
