I'm looking for some long boardshorts to ride. I'm 6'4 and i'm looking for some boardshorts that will go under my knee. I've got some that are 25" long but i'm looking for something longer. Something like 26"+ in size 38 or 40.

If you got any model that you would suggest me, please let me know.

I'm like 6'2 and wear a 32, all of my boardshorts end mid-knee and I hate that, even my Jetpilot ones are like that. You think the Cire ones are longer?

Cires are the longest I have seen. All of my favorite shorts are Cires.

Dan... I've got the same problem. I ended up wearing shorts that are one size too big so I could get them longer. They sag a bit, but it works.

Cire's are definitely long. Good designs, too.

Ya my 32's are a little bit big for the same reason so I can't go any bigger, if I did I'd lose them on a crash. I think once I get some money I'm gonna try some Cire's out, pretty nice graphics and stuff, I like the simplicity.

I wear my shorts off the water all the time too though.

The super freaks are so expensive! They look nice, but I can't imagine dropping 80 bucks on boardshorts.

just some advice on Cire from my experienc, they run just a tad small(in comparison to the other brands i own). but they got some rad styles and they are so comfortable. plus they have top notch customer service.

newj hoser: do you mean they run small in length, or do you mean waist size?
Old     (tinytdubb)      Join Date: Jul 2007       04-21-2008, 10:31 PM Reply   
waist size. sorry

Cire's all the way, that's all I'm wearing this summer!! If you're a traditional size 36 I'd recomend getting a 38 as I think they fit a little snug!

I got the 08 Hyperlite Murray Lemon/Lime color. Absolutley love them. Fit perfectly. The inseam in longer too. So these would work for you too.

Since boardshorts fit everyone differently based on your body type, we recommend you order your true size.
If you wear a 32 then order a 32. If you are in between sizes, like a 33, we recommend going up to a 34.
If you are unsure, order them anyway and you can return them or exchange them with no problem. Thanks for the support everyone.

you can always buy 2-3 sizes too big and pay $10 and get them altered. I have a buddy who wears 32's and buys 40's and has them altered. They come out looking normal as long as ther's not a tone of graphics on them.

Adam, that's a great idea. I just lost a few pounds, now all of my shorts fall off.

Another vote for CIRE shorts.

I'm 6'5" and have two pairs of CIRE shorts that are nice and long.

No complaints about them at all.

Has nothing to do with long boardshorts, but WhiskyMilitia has some Volcom boardshorts on there right now.
