Darwin boardshorts - the ultimate in versatility

27 Jun

What are Darwin boardshorts?

We’ve been talking about our Darwin boardshorts a lot lately, but for those of you who don’t quite get the concept, we thought we’d give you a little rundown on why these versatile shorts are indeed game changing.

Super quick-dry with 4-way stretch, the Darwin is tailored to workaday requirements, but with boardie functionality, giving a smooth transition from early morning water session to office smart.
