As an avid surfer myself, I like to keep up with the latest in the surfing world. Recently, Hurley has created collections of boardshorts built to withstand the heaviest surfing conditions with the most elite surfers in the world. Designs for pro surfer Julian Wilson have a performance fit for total freedom of movement. Plus the water-repellent stretch fabric is made with recycled materials, which is good for carving and for the planet. The Julian Wilson boardshorts keep you fast and light on the surf, and are comfortable even if you’re just catching some rays poolside.
If you’re wondering why you recognize Wilson’s name, it’s probably from when he was hailed a hero after paddling out to Mick Fanning following a great white shark attack at the J-Bay Open 2015 in South Africa. Surfing enthusiast or not, if you didn’t know him before, you know now.
A newer member to the Hurley surf family is John John Florence. After catching his first wave at age 3, Florence has continued to stun the surfing world with his talent. See more of his story here. Clearly this young pro is a force to be reckoned with on the water, and needs gear to match. Again, boardshorts with stretch are key for any level of surfer. These JJF boardshorts have a low-profile and secure waistband that never lets you down.
For some more panache, try Florence’s signature shorts in an updated camo print. Same stretch and secure fit for minimal distraction with maximum comfort.
