A new classic that lives up to Birdwell’s high quality standards. Limited edition inspired by classic 3D.
Back in surf’s early days, there was only one way to see a 3D movie: through those magical red and blue glasses, on a big screen in a room full of strangers. We laid our favorite colors of the year out together and it hit us like a ton of imaginary bricks—we had to make a pair with that classic 3D look. With blue and red contrast stitching and a limited blue and red patch, they’re like taking a trip to see a far-out 3D movie starring our favorite guy, Birdie—glasses not included.
The 808 Limited-Edition 3D Birdie Board Short, 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. Whether you’re slinking up to the drive-in window in your ‘71 Caprice or making a splash at pool party in the hills, the 808 is made to move with you.
