A modern icon, subtly refined over half a century of surf and sun. Medium length. Limited edition inspired by the mission at hand.
We’ve pressed our SurfStretch™ into service to craft a tough-as-nails pair that’s ready to accompany you on any mission—from the South China Sea to your favorite watering hole. Our Tropical Mission Board Shorts are built for serious action and serious fun with an olive ripstop waistband cut from the same fabric used in WWII uniforms, Mil-Spec black oxide grommets and an “Aloha” patch on the left leg.
The 808 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 planning a strategic strike on a locals-only spot or just turning up the style at your local break, our 808 board short in camo is key ammunition in any board short quiver.
