Heritage meets Innovation. The SurfStretch Tactical Walk Shorts combine 55+ years of experience designing products in SurfNyl with last year’s introductions of the SurfStretch fabric and our Tactical Walk Shorts.
Last year we introduced walk shorts that were built out of necessity. They had to be as durable as our board shorts, but be able to hold the requisite gear when you weren’t water adjacent. Our internal challenge was, “if you were headed on a surf trip, and could only bring one pair of shorts, what would they be, “and our tactical walk shorts were born. The Tactical Walk Shorts are a build-quality masterpiece, confirmed by high praise from our most discerning customers.
Last year we also developed our first stretch board shorts, the 808, and we knew we could only do that when we found a stretch fabric as bulletproof as our classic SurfNyl. These lighter weight board shorts passed the quality and durability test that our customers expect, becoming a staple in many’s board short quivers.
Built with the same attention to detail as our canvas version, this lighter version combines SurfNyl and SurfStretch for the first time. We’ve also swapped the Velcro in our adjustable side tabs for a military spec buckle, which gives you the same unlimited adjustability as our original without any risk of Velcro wear out. These shorts dry fast, wear cool, and are the next evolution of what we think are the perfect walk shorts.
