In 2018 we took a look at almost every board shorts brand on the market to find the best performance board shorts. We defined this as the shorts you'd take on your dream boat trip.
The Quiksilver Highline New Wave Pro's took the honours....but here's the thing. There hasn't been a lot of new development in the boardshort space in 2018, which makes it hard to recycle everything we said last year.
Thankfully two brands launched new and innovative shorts that broke the mould from their previous designs and brought new fabrics, constructions and ideas to the table.
So in this episode we deep dive into the creation and performance of the Patagonia Hydroflow boardshorts and the Rip Curl 3/2/One Ultimate boardshorts.
Featuring interviews with the creators and designers and a full review against all of last years best performing shorts.
Interesting folks, harsh opinions and a whole lot of surf geekery.
Enjoy Boardshorts 2019
