decent, not worth 150 bones!!!
i do a lot of different things in the ocean and finding a comfortable boardshort that can allow me to stay in the water for a long period of time without rashing was something i was searching for. I saw these boardshorts and figured that if someone were to pay 150 bucks for a pair of shorts they better not only prevent rashing but moisturuze your skin while you have them on! after about 5 days on maui bodyboarding and shooting pictures in the ocean the normal rashing came like usual so i was pretty disappointed. They are a decent pair of boardshorts but you are going to be able to find another pair that does about the same for half the price, don't waste your money......even go for the cheaper hurley phantoms they are just as effective as these. Nothing personal too Hurley, i think they are a very cool company but the shorts are too pricey for me and most other consumers.
Great Boardshorts but find the sale
I just got a pair of the Hurley 4D board-shorts from The Clymb and my first thought was "wow this is one expensive pair of swim trunks." They need some more colors, i chose the multi-color pair and they look better in person. Anyways they were selling for 79 bucks and i had some store credit so i was able to get them with shipping for about 40 $ which is a STEAL!
I was excited to get them and put them to good use, and they did not disappoint. One of the most comfortable articles of clothing i have put on my body. You feel like you can karate kick like Jackie Chan and run as fast as Usain Bolt. The waterproofing of the suit is second to none, it just falls off the board-shorts like little balls of water. The waistband technology is also very comfortable and secure, but without the feeling that you have them too tight.
Overall i was scared of spending the money, but these shorts of the best of the best! If you're willing to spend the BIG$ and want the best shorts for the summer do it, but try to find a deal for them. If you just want to lay by the pool and not use the parts of the suit designed for activity then these are not for you.
great board shorts
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Worth Every Dollar!!!
These are the cream of the crop in Hurley Boardshorts! Hurley is all about True Innovation and these are just that. Not only are they 100% recycled (each short is made with 12 recycled water bottles) but they are super lightweight, 4-way stretch, Nike Flywire taking away metal rivets, 4D waistband that interlocks at the waist (acts like a chinese fingertrap...interlocking around the waist..ie...won't fall off), microdot drawcords that grip so they won't untie, and amazing engineered print! Definitely worth every penny!
