Iconic board shorts with throwback style, in a striped colorway with pop for the warmer months. With 4-way flexible SurfStretch™️, a regular rise and curved waistband, plus a modern cut, they’re designed for a life in motion. Signature Birdwell details like an adjustable tab closure, flap pocket, and a 60th anniversary Birdwell patch on the leg add to the style and function. They’re ideal for covering up bikini bottoms during a long surf session, getting on the yoga mat, or just lounging in the summer sun.
Our founder Carrie Birdwell Mann sewed the first pair of Birdies in 1961, and for almost 40 years, her daughter Vivian presided over an ever-growing business anchored in sunny Southern California. In honor of our heritage, we’ve been honing our line of women’s board shorts since we first introduced the 404’s. These are the most classic women’s board shorts we offer, closest to Carrie’s original handiwork.
