Birdwell Competition Jackets have been a status symbol in the California surf scene as far back as the 1960s. As one of the first products we made—just after our board shorts—wearing one with a matching pair of Birdies marked a surfer as a member of a team or club. That often resulted in nods of respect or feelings of envy at the local break or boardwalk.
Featuring a classic naturally-DWR SurfNyl exterior, double-stitched for unbeatable durability by expert craftspeople in Santa Ana California. The Three Strip Competition Jacket features everything we love about our original, with a slightly more tailored fit and longer hem, as well as a lightweight mesh liner for comfort and breathability. Three tonal stripes run horizontally across a smart navy blue, so you can look cleaned up, even if you’re coming straight from the beach.
