#LIFESBETTERINBOARDSHORTS

With a catalogue of boardshorts Billabong has been offering since ‘73, it is little surprise to why the brand today remains the leading surf brand in the market. And ensuring that its legacy remains strong and deeply relevant after all this time isn’t always easy. Which is why the brand’s design wiz and R&D team have worked hand-in-hand for over 40 years to attempt every kind of design and technological opportunity, making sure that Billabong’s range of products always feel and look fresh.

This season, we take cue from fashions runway agenda and are going back in time, giving our latest selection of boardshorts a sweet throwback style reminiscent of the good ‘ol days. Flashback silhouettes of the ‘50s, through to the ‘80s and ‘90s is a dominant component in the details. Think washed brights, stripe accents and cut-and-sew panels. Why? Because #LIFESBETTERINBOARDSHORTS


PUMP’D
This season’s lead product fronted by Creed Mctaggart, the PUMP’D is one handsome looking boardshort that takes on strong retro influence from our neo-print wetsuit designs of the ‘80s. But beyond eye-catching colour usage and zig-zig details, its 18inch leg length, cut-and-sew panels and waist lasso tie also further authenticates its vintage look.
