My board shorts ripped yesterday all the way up to the waistline. I went to find some knew board shorts at the mall today but could not find any with the built in underwear. I know all us guys hated it when all the trunks had them but now that none of the trunks have them I miss it. I have another pair of shorts without the underwear but I dont like them as much as the old school. Wearing boxers underneath makes you wet for the ride home. Anyways just miss the old built in stuff.

Man, I hated those things. Come to think of it, I think I have a couple pairs my Mom bought me for my B-Day last year (never been worn). I can send them your way, if you like.

i liked the netting! i have been tempted to wear the old banana sling to prevent injury. the netting dried out alot quicker than whitey tightys. Some extra support is a good thing. A little swamp-ass is alot better than a ball-breaker.

Bring back the net!

Shawn, what size? I'll take them.

You wear underwear under your boardshorts? Those mesh things in the old shorts were like wearing nothing anyway. Go with out! LOL!

"swamp-ass"
I thought I was the only one saying that! HAHA

The netting went out with the elastic waist band. I hate those. I picked up a couple pairs from costco and couldn't stand them.

Luke, what size is you waist? I'll send you the ones I have. Think I tried them on once and threw then back in the drawer.

Get a speedo and where it underneath the shorts, good for support, drys fast etc. Still uncomfortable though.

Swamp-ass.... I haven't heard that in awhile due to the fact that we just call it swass. Or if you got some really raunchy farts, we used to call it hot ass, which turned to Hass... Eh, just a random thought from the guy back here in the peanut gallery.

I think they are like 32's or 33's. If you want them I'll hook it up.

Under Armor boxer briefs work good under board shorts...gotta protect big jimmy and the twins!

Good post. I don't like my boys being that free either. It is hard to find shorts with the netting.

under armor is the only way to go

goodtimes - "its hard to find shorts with the netting"

That is so untrue...if you buy the $65 billabong, jet pilot, and fox boards shorts you do. But if you go to walmart and buy the $10 shorts like me, its really hard to find the ones without netting. The ones with netting have the best graphics but i hate that itchy net.

Yeah, the net sucks. I always cut them out of the shorts.
Old    goodtimes (goodtimes)      Join Date: Sep 2003       08-06-2004, 4:32 PM Reply   
Maybe I'm looking for shorts at the wrong time of year. That could be part of the problem. When I need shorts, it's usually at the end of the year. Then everyone's sold out already.
Walmart ones are a good price but they seem to be fairly ugly colors. Probably picked over already. I'm guessing the selection isn't as good to begin with at Walmart here in Canada as in the US.

yea, i buy the walmart brand that are simple colors like grey with a blue stripe down the side. Some of the stuff tries to imitate the big name brands and looks like crap. They have like dragons, flames, and chinese lettering...looks like crap.

buy a speedo and wear it under your boardshorts...i started doing this after the wind blew up my shorts leg and gave the whole front of the boat a nice peek at the family jewels!!!

I went to Pac Sun yesterday and they said they have shipped all their suits out already. They had jeans and looked all geared for fall already. Stupid retail leads into the seasons so soon.

Man, i hated them so much that i cut them out of a pair of shorts. Sounds a little cheap... lol...but slap a pair of boxers under and its much better now.
Old    jonnyrotten79            08-08-2004, 8:03 PM Reply   
when i wear boxers under my boardshorts it stays wet like all day and then when i sported the nets man i had mad chaffing and now i stick to name brands so now i just where regular boardshorts with my under armor and it always works for me

Has anyone worn the Jet Pilot Crown Jewel boardshorts with the inner neoprene?
Old    moomman            08-09-2004, 11:10 AM Reply   
Try these if your looking for speedos. The training suits have more room and double layers.

Old Navy had some board shorts with liners earlier this year. They might also be on clearance for Fall so check that section.
