MEN'S JOURNAL called us again recently to let us know they were thinking of putting our Spartan Ocean Shorts in their summer gear guide. These sort of calls are pretty exciting for any brand, let alone a small start-up like us. It was a great relief to make the cut and see our boardshorts prominently (bottom right) alongside some of those from the best surf brands out there, and we couldn't be happier with what they wrote.
They declared that "trunks don't come more highly engineered than these" and that they were “packed with tech.”
They also noted the PaddleSaver ®, a patent pending device we invented to keep your paddle close to you should you lose your board at sea and need to swim with it.
