Decades ago at G-Land, pioneering surfer Gerry Lopez started painting camo prints on his surfboards to cut the glare of the tropical sun. Now, we’ve taken our simplest and most minimal surf trunks and added some of Gerry’s functional prints to build the new Stretch Hydropeak Gerry Lopez Boardshorts. With four-way stretch for the most dynamic movement, they’re made from a superlight, fast-drying 87% recycled polyester/13% spandex blend with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection. The streamlined performance fit is optimized to reduce binding and chafing, and we’ve replaced a traditional, multipiece waistband and fly with a fused waistband that eliminates a fabric layer and conforms to the shape of the hips, staying snug to the body through a full range of motion. For travel ease, the shorts can also pack snugly into the small pocket on the seat, which has an internal key loop and a non-corroding, recyclable plastic zipper with a pull cord for ease of use. A notched hem provides additional mobility through the leg. Outseam is 18". Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.
