A modern icon, subtly refined over half a century of surf and sun. Medium length. Inspired by the mission at hand.
We’ve pressed our Woodland Camo SurfNyl™ back into service to craft a tough-as-nails pair that’s ready to accompany you on any mission—from the South China Sea to your favorite watering hole. Our Tropical Mission Board Shorts are built for serious action and serious fun with an olive ripstop waistband cut from the same fabric used in WWII uniforms, Mil-Spec black oxide grommets and an “Aloha” patch on the left leg.
Previously issued as a limited edition and now a staple based on customer demand, the 311 Tropical Mission Board Shorts are a medium-length version of Ms. Birdwell’s original design — lightly modernized and improved over more than 50 years of field testing by lifeguards and surfers who depend on their Birdies to last a lifetime of waves. Each pair of our 311 board shorts is hand cut from our proprietary SurfNyl™️ and sewn by expert craftspeople in Santa Ana, California. With a simple button fly, a tab closure for an adjustable fit, and matching woodland camo buttons, these are ready to ship out at a moment’s notice.
