Not just for men, there are cool and comfortable board shorts made for women and kid beach lovers as well. Boardshorts or surf shorts are comfortable and practical for surfing, body surfing, water skiing and wakeboarding. Plus, they look great for just hanging out at the beach or cruising down the boardwalk, whether on a bike or in your flip flops.
Paired with a rash guard or swim shirt, you are ready for spending some quality time in the water.
Children can play in the sand and surf in girl or boy boardshorts. In general, womens boardshorts are a bit shorter and lower cut. But they come in longer styles too. Wear with a bikini or rashguard.
