Ride the green wave of style with the recycled board short collection. If you’re looking to make a splash this year on the open water riding that perfect wave or by purchasing recycled products, make a statement with a pair of wicked looking recycled board shorts. With all the plastics currently ending up in the water or the trash, it’s hard to think anything good can come from it. With this recent collection of high fashion board shorts, that’s about to change. In our latest collection we have gathered some wicked looking board shorts such as the Burgh Board Short by Riz which uses 100% recycled fabrics (plastic bottles). Designed in England and made in Portugal, these shorts feature no side seams and are cut just above the knee. Next is the Billabong Tribong Performance Boardshort, a strong fav’ of ours featuring a shorter modern performance fit, all made from 92% recycled polyester (saves about 25 bottles from ending up in the ocean), and 8% elastane.The AG47 New Wave Bonded 19″ Boardshorts by QuickSilver are made from 80% traceable recycled REPREVE 4-way stretch polyester fibers, and 20% Elastane and feature a lighter stronger dry flight fabric with 3M Scotch guard Protector Repellent Coating. Calipher Boardshort by VISSLA combines 50% recycled Polyester with 38% coconut and 12% spandex. United by Blue and their Longbow boardshorts follows up with their own refined creation blending 51% Organic Cotton (chosen for its none polluting production), 43% recycled polyester and 6% spandex. Scallop cut, they have a wicked vintage feel that is soft to touch, lightweight, and durable as hell. To finish off the bunch, Patagonia and their Wavefarer classic Boardshort lay the foundation. Made from 38% recycled DWR finish, they feature a 50+ UPF sun protection and are by far one of the great go-anywhere, do-anything trunks. This collection proves fashion can be recycled year after year.
