A new classic that lives up to Birdwell’s high quality standards, now in all black for a stealth arrival. Made to go hand in hand with one of our Blackout Patches (click on “ADD PATCHES & BUTTONS” to add one to these shorts.)
Black speaks quietly and moves with certainty. When your actions set you apart, you don’t need to wear a flashy pair. Ride under the radar in our new 808 Limited-Edition Blackout Board Shorts, cut from our four-way stretch nylon, SurfStretch™️—a fabric strong enough to hold its own against our legendary SurfNyl™️. They’ll never see you coming.
The 808 Board Shorts, whose name honors surfing’s Hawaiian roots, is a modernized version of Ms. Birdwell’s original design, built in versatile, motion-friendly SurfStretch™️. Sewn from a single layer of woven microfiber by expert craftspeople in Santa Ana, California, the 808 is lighter, softer and more mobile than our other shorts — without sacrificing the rugged durability that’s made Birdwell an icon of classic surf style. With a simple button fly, a tab closure for an adjustable fit, and timelessly appealing contrast stitch, these shorts are built to move, in silence if necessary.
