A modern icon, subtly refined over a half century of surf and sun. Classic shorter length. Limited edition inspired by surfing’s golden era.
Back in surfing’s early days the water was clearer, a crowd meant a few dozen friends in the lineup, and every ride lasted at least two minutes—at least that’s how we remember it. We dug back into our archives for the best bits of Golden Age surf style, bringing them together in one flawless, timeless design. Short, sharp, and the color of California sunshine with a white band and twin side stripes to set everything off just right, this limited edition is the pair we’ve always wanted.
The Limited-Edition 310 Golden Era Board Shorts hold close to 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 310 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 a matched white military button, these are truly a class act.
