How to measure yourself for the perfect board short or swim short.

Shorts Waist / Outseam

When was the last time you measured your waist? We know it's not something guys generally do but your jean size is NOT your short size. Jeans often measure 2 inches larger than they say.

To ensure you get the RIGHT SIZE FIRST TIME, we recommend you measure your natural waist now!

Our shorts measure just slightly larger than waist size for comfort. Wear your normal size.
