Ocean Shorts

Engineered for the beach. Or a wave the size of a building.


Model is 6ft 2 / 188cm with a 32 inch / 81cm waist, and wears size Medium.

  • Extreme four way stretch
  • Ultra-soft Italian mesh lining
  • Treated with plant-based water repellent technology

Made from ultra-tough compression fabric, our Ocean Shorts are designed to work in all 350 million square kilometres of the oceans on Earth. Whether you’re on a beach, a boat, a paddleboard, or a wave the size of a building, these are the most advanced shorts anywhere on the planet. With detailing cut by lasers, bartacks welded on for strength, and streamlined pockets, they’re a stripped-down feat of engineering. Highly abrasion resistant against reefs and rocks and with soft Italian mesh protecting your balls, they stretch like an elastic band, block UV and repel water with plant-based technology. And by building the world’s best board shorts, we’ve created the most versatile shorts ever made – as high-performance on a mountain as they are in the mid-Atlantic.

A stripped-down aesthetic built with laser cutting, welding and bonding

The job of our Ocean Shorts is to save your skin from rocks, sand, wind, sun, and reefs. So every design decision we made was to enhance their performance. With the waist, legs and pockets all cut by laser, bartacks welded on for strength, and seams bonded for simplicity, the reason they look like a stripped-out feat of engineering is because they are.

They’re the stretchiest shorts you’ll ever wear

Whether you’re a kitesurfer or a yogi, there’s literally no move you can pull where these shorts will restrict you. If you were holding a metre of this fabric, you’d be able to stretch it to 1.5 metres in any direction, and as soon as you let go it would instantly return to its normal shape thanks to the huge amount of elastane we’ve used. Stronger and more durable than rubber, the more elastane you blend with another material the stretchier it becomes. These shorts are 34% elastane making them unbelievably stretchy.

The shorts’ invisible tech blocks invisible UV rays

Just like sunblock, fabric can be rated for its ability to reduce your exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet light. The Ultraviolet Protection Factor, or UPF, determines how much more protection your skin would have while wearing that piece of clothing. A UPF rating of 15 for example would give your skin 15x more protection than it would have if it was unprotected. These shorts are so densely knitted that the fabric scores a UPF of 50+ which is the highest possible rating, giving you the highest possible protection.
