A modern icon, subtly refined over half a century of surf and sun. Medium length. Limited edition inspired by the magic hour on the California coast.
No one can deny the awesome power of a beautiful sunset — especially one that follows a long day of enjoyment in the sand and surf. In tribute to this magic moment and those final waves we’ve caught in its electrifying light, we decided to craft a limited pair of our 311 Board Shorts with our first-ever multi-color top stitching. Add a deep blue SurfNyl exterior (the sea), orange lining (the sun) and a limited “Sunset” patch on the left leg, and we’d like to think these are worthy of the real thing.
The 311 LE Sunset 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 contrast stitching in orange and yellow, these’ll last for a lifetime of sand, surf, and beautiful sunsets.
