Board shorts are usually longer (ending over the knee) and have more pockets, usually on the side of the leg. They are a great addition to your summer wear and don’t always require a dip in the water nearby. Wearing boardshorts is a statement and reference to a certain lifestyle, that makes it easier to spot and find those with similar interests. Due to their larger size, they are able to sport beautiful patterns and the possibility of even cargo pockets for those necessities needed on the go. The material still makes it an ideal choice for the water, but are trending more and more as the choice to enjoy those beautiful tropical villages, without getting overheated by more conventional materials.
