I recently bought my son some board shorts, and asked him to try them on.
“Mommy, we need to give them something to do.”
“Mommy, they’re bored shorts. Get it?”
Ah, the pleasures of the seven year old sense of humor.
But really, what is the difference between board shorts and swim trunks, anyway? Board shorts are designed for surfing, so usually they are made out of sturdier material than regular swim trunks. Also, swim trunks usually have an inner lining, whereas board shorts won’t. But, I have seen clothing that claims to be one or the other, yet has design elements of both. So, buyer beware. However, the shorts below are all made by reputable surf companies, so board shorts you will get.
