Shorts to sum up 60 years. With throwback colorways and classically-styled stripes plus modern SurfNyl, this one-off design tells the story of Birdwell. From our 60th Anniversary collection, it's a celebration of quality, craft, and timeless style since we started making board shorts in 1961. Long length.
The 312 board short is a longer 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. We’ve found that these are the ideal length for larger guys and those looking for a bit more coverage. Each pair of our 312 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 timelessly appealing contrast stitch, these long shorts will be with you for many summers to come.
