The Quiksilver Cypher Brigg Scallop Board Short brings the bold color and get-noticed stripes of a hard-core power tie to the beach. But, unlike surfing in nothing but a tie, you won't get board rash in unmentionable places, and you won't get arrested (which is always nice).
- Smooth four-way diamond dobby stretch uses recycled polyester with a healthy dose of spandex to make it easy to move
- Surf-style waist keeps these boardies securely around your waist
- Stretch stitch bottom hems won't pull tight against your legs

Great fit. Bad features.

The good...I really love the fit and the style of these shorts. They're short but not too short. Love the stretch in the material. Love the colors (I got the Vintage Blue). The materials is soft and super comfie. I usually where 32s and got the 32s and they were spot on.
The bad... These have the worst fly ever. There's a small gap below where the waistband ties but there's no velcro to completely close the fly--kind of like boxer shorts. It's really odd. I actually had somebody sew a piece of velcro there for me. Also, they're light colored and the material doesn't seem to clean very well. Granted, I took them on a river trip and got them pretty dirty but it seems that most board shorts would clean up better.
