A modern icon, subtly refined over half a century of surf and sun. Medium length. Limited edition with classic 3 stripe design.
We’ve said it before: good things come in threes. To complement our 3 Stripe Competition and Racing jackets, we decided to craft a pair of our 311 board shorts with three stripes instead of two. A staple design on the earliest competition shorts and jackets, the extra stripe only goes in one direction: to the front of the pack.
The 311 LE 3 Stripe 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 all the durability you expect from Birdwell board shorts, these are a classic of surf style — now with 50% more stripe.
