Hurley Block Party Boardshort

Hurley Block Party Boardshort

“These guys have the stretch, but aren’t super paper thin, so it feels like you’re wearing a boardshort and won’t be see through poolside. They have the modern knee length cut, so they don’t get in the way when you’re surfing. I think they still look clean and fashionable, but they are not super bright. *Has a super no rash fly, no zipper, just a folded piece of buttery material, for comfy paddling.” Aaron Oside Store Mngr
