A new classic that lives up to Birdwell’s high quality standards.
When you’re riding a wave, everything starts at the highline. It’s the launchpad, the takeoff, the split second moment where you decide where the ride will take you. Inspired by its possibilities, we’ve created a new pair for those finding their line with federal blue and white racing stripes on the side. With the classic, natural colors of a breaking wave, these wear well with just about anything.
The 808 Limited-Edition High Line Board Short, whose name honors surfing’s Hawaiian roots, is a modernized version of Ms. Birdwell’s original design, built in versatile, motion-friendly SurfStretch™️. Sewn from a single layer of woven microfiber by expert craftspeople in Santa Ana, California, the 808 is lighter, softer and more mobile than our other shorts — without sacrificing the rugged durability that’s made Birdwell an icon of classic surf style. Whether you’re screaming along the high line or bottom-turning your way to glory, the 808 is made to move with you.
