A modern icon, subtly refined over half a century of surf and sun. Medium length. Limited edition inspired by dawn patrol sessions.
One of the day’s most powerful and majestic moments comes at daybreak, when the sun first explodes over the horizon in dazzling hues of red, yellow, and orange. The best way to experience it? For our money, it’s a solitary walk on the beach as the first waves lap the shore and gulls fly high above. We’ve created a pair that captures the beauty and power of that morning moment with an ocean blue SurfNyl™ body, triple-tier stripe design in the colors of the sunrise as well as a chambray waistband and pocket that will gather their own unique patina over the years like the shoreline.
The Limited Edition 311 Sunrise 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 a look all their own, these are a stand-out at any beach, pool or party.
