Since beginning with boardshorts, way back in 1969 we have been combining all we know about technology, fit, materials and prints to develop the best boardshorts we can for surfers like you. As it's at the core of what we do, we are continuously innovating so you can surf your best, whatever the session throws your way. From working closely with our team of professional surfers to develop signature models that meet their high expectations, stylists who develop the latest trends or scientists who channel their knowhow into providing you with superb in-water comfort during your surf sessions. It's all covered in our Quiksilver men's boardshort collection.
Quiksilver Boardshort Materials
Here at Quiksilver we offer a whole range of boardshort materials that we have been developing over the years: :
Diamond Dobby DLX
The cushy Diamond Dobby DLX fabric uses what is known as dobby in the sewing world, to create a complete surface of tiny raised diamonds that reduce contact between the boardshort and your skin by over 30%. Less contact with the skin, especially when your shorts and body are bathed in salt water, means less rashes and skin irritation to keep you surfing wave after wave. Quiksilver Diamond Dobby DLX also offers an incredible memory that means your boardshorts will keep their shape session after session, season after season.
4-Way stretch Diamond Dobby
All the brains of the Diamond Dobby, with the magic movability of stretch that goes 4 ways. Our 4-way stretch technology is at the pinnacle of board short design, allowing excellent freedom to move both horizontally and vertically.
Our Quik Dry fabric technology uses a water repellent treatment that will have your Quiksilver board shorts drying 2 times faster than standard boardshorts. Not only does it dry quicker but it absorbs less water. Great when you want to make the most of your time on the coast, or you're not a fan of slipping on those damp boardshorts for a morning surf- but then again who is!
We have developed feather-light materials that that won't hold you back or weigh your down, giving you the freedom to make your mark in the line-up.
