      • 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 trunks that we tested to near destruction on Maui and off its North Shore. (It took a long time.)

        Regularly reviewed as the world's finest and best board shorts, our Spartan Shorts are luxurious, tailored, hydrophobic (water repellent) and built to last.

        They are the only pair you'll need - both in and out of the water.

      • What's the PaddleSaver PAT® ?
        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.

        The Patented PaddleSaver in included  with every pair of Spartan Board Shorts.

        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 board 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.
