    When we set out to create the ultimate board shorts we wanted the perfect balance of form and function. So we took extreme performance Swiss fabrics and tailored them into great fitting shorts that we tested to near destruction on Maui and off its North Shore. (It took a long time.)

    The result? Well, you're looking at it. The Spartan: perhaps the only shorts that will make you as happy on land as you are in the water.

    What the press says:

    “nicest we’ve ever worn...they look and feel twice as good as your average boardshorts - and will last twice as long.” - Outside Magazine

    “perfect for the boat, and for the pool”   - SAILING WORLD Magazine

    "freshest performance shorts we’ve ever tested” - Men`s Journal

        • What's the PaddleSaver ® (Patent Pending)?
          The PaddleSaver is something we developed out of necessity. We've lost our board a bunch of times since we started stand-up surfing and we've had to swim back to shore, broken leash attached to leg, paddle in hand. So we thought that something that made swimming with a paddle easier might come in handy, something like the Bluesmiths PaddleSaver™. It won't stop you losing your board, but at least you and your paddle are going to make it back more efficiently to shore.

          What's NanoSphere?
          NanoSphere is the best and most durable Durable Water Repellency (DWR) we have found to date. It`s also a BlueSign® approved application.

          How do the shorts fit?
          The Spartan is a progressive fit, tailored surf short. It runs true to size but slightly slimmer than some surf companies offer. If you are specifically looking for a looser fit, we suggest taking a size larger than you would normally.
