how many companies do you know will come in here and ask you what you look for in boardshorts? better yet, how many companies will ask you what you want, then make it for you? i know of only 1 company: cire!!! a few months ago, there was a thread about boardshorts. i chimed in w/ my suggestions: kelly green w/ very little loud graphics. what do i find in my mailbox today?

eric, thanks man, and thanks for taking my suggestions and running w/ it. i'm sure people will be down for this design! it's definitely loud, but super clean and so not obnoxious! oh, and they're long past the knees!

Joe when I saw the top part of your post & the pic, I thought you got a new dog in the mail

Cire & Eric rock for sure. Nice graphics.

while those are sweet, and i'd sport a pair if i could get them (just checked the website and didn't see them), i wonder if i requested 60's era short trunks they would make them.......i'm not a fan of the long boardshorts. even the "shortie" boardshorts that are being sold today are about twice as long as they should be for my taste.

Joe,
Stoked you like the design!!! Thanks for the idea and these are the “DaKid” Boardshort.

Kduff,
We made 2 hand samples when Joe gave us the idea. I had 1 pair of size 34 left that I added to the website last night but someone already snagged them.


To answer the other questions, here is what we are doing..…we are going to take this boardshort and expand on it. Most of our designs have distinct prints and colors and run at $48. I put a post up a few months ago that asked everyone what they thought about boardshort cost and all the technical stretchy fabrics that are out now. My biggest problem with the direction of boardshorts in the industry is that you can’t get a good pair for under $48 and prices keep going higher every year. The boardshort buyer guide I saw in Surfing magazine featured 200 pairs and only 17 pair were priced under $50. While we can’t price drop our core line of boardshorts due to the cost of the printed fabric, I want to be able to get those who can only afford to spend $35, a good pair of trunks.

So these will become the cornerstone of our Recession line of boardshorts, all priced at $35, all the time. The Recession line will have the same length, style, and sewing as our core line but with tamed down graphics and more basic colors. We will have our first boardshort from the Recession line in stock in a few weeks, yes Wakecourage, they will be in black but the logos will be a little different. We will add the DaKid boardshort to next year’s line.

Thanks everyone for your support of the brand!!!!!

Eric is the man! He and Innov8 were awesome in taking care of me when I ordered the wrong size shorts. They were on closeout and could have blown me off, but they both went out of their way to get it right for me.

Thanks guys...you both are awesome!

Hey Eric, the recession line sounds great! Just curious though, no 33" waist available in your line up?
I always have a problem with most 32"s being a bit tight, and almost all 34"s being way too big.
Old    CIREboardshorts.com (nuckledragger)      Join Date: Jun 2004       07-08-2009, 12:06 PM Reply   
Chris,
No size 33 for us, we seem to be able to get everyone into either a 32 or 34. We might have to exchange a size or two every now and then but one of them usually works out.

Andy,
The dog is on product flow from us, it was part of the deal, so were good to use the photo :-)

If you can lay them out flat that would be cool. I didn't get a chance to shoot them before I sent them off.

I am right there with you rio sanger. 33 is the only size in most trunks that fit me right. 32's are a bit tight, and I dont drink enough beer anymore to make the 34's fit.

c'mon Eric! make the 33's happen, and you put me down for two pairs!!!!

Congrats Joe! I had a feeling all those posts would come in handy some day.

Hey guys I was in the same boat. I bought some 32's from Cire and they were to small. I talked to Eric and he told me to exchange them for the 34's. I got them and they fit perfect. He designed them to have some adjustability to fill that 33 size gap. Trust me, if the 32 are to small, the 34 will fit fine!

So to answer the questions above and some emails I have received, here is the first boardshort from the Recession line......

The SESSION boardshort is in the last stages of production and will be here in about 2 weeks. We added it to our site this morning.

for the whole sizing thing (ie 32 vs 34 etc), speaking of all board shorts in general. if you thread the holes a little different you can get the shorts to tighten about a half an inch more. line the holes up on each side over the top of each other then put the lace all the way through, dont criss cross from top to bottom. hope this makes sense in words, it makes more sense when i can show it. i have helped out a handfull of people with this little trick in the past, but don't think i have mentioned it on the forums yet.

It makes perfect sense and I have never thought to do that. Great idea. Post up a pic so the others know what you mean.

thanks, I am surprised at how often the trick is overlooked, as simple as it is, but i suppose that is why it is not always thought of.

First the Traditional Factory way
Upload


here it is TIGHT!
Upload




Now the Byromie way...

start like this
Upload

then pull them through the other side so the holes over lap without crossing laces
Upload

giving you just a tiny bit more tightness that makes a big difference, especially if you are between sizes, or if you recently made more room after a meal
Upload


effectively you have about 3 size/tightness settings: loose, tight, and the overlap method tight
see pic for comparison

So we took all the feedback on the Session boardshort and made some changes. We are going to simplify the logo placement like the DaKid and keep that the theme throughout the Recession line. There will be the pinstripe on the left hip and the logo on the right leg. We will take off the logo on the left leg and on the back.
Thanks for all the feedback. We want to make a boardshort for the people :-)

I will post up a photo once the factory finishes the sample.

Here are the new shorts that Cire sent me. They come in all-white with black logos and designs that you can color in. I let my daughter go to town on these things and I think they came out pretty cool. She even did some coloring around some WakeWorld die-cuts (the one on the back is kind of hard to see with the wind blowing). I'd probably prefer fewer logos and more freehand space and some longer-lasting markers, but I think it's a pretty cool idea. And as many have already stated, the shorts are pretty nice too!

I've got some serious hook ups on oneill stuff, but damn those dakid boardshorts are sick! I've got tons of superfreaks and hyperfreaks, but that design is awesome. Let us know when you get them back in stock.
