Summer Summer Summer-Time! Yes it’s finally warmer and we’ve been pretty lucky with the UK weather so far this year… Let’s hope it keeps coming!
We have chosen our favourite board shorts from some of our retailers to give you a good idea of what styles are out there for 2018. As you will notice, we like a mix of styles, from bright colourful graphics to mellow designs for both beach and the streets. It’s great to see the progression in the technology of materials used for boardies, which aim to improve comfort and help dry quicker, as well as starting to use eco friendly or recycled fabrics. So check out below our top picks from this year’s board short range and get yourselves to the beach!
