Rip Curl Mirage x KFiSH

Rip Curl knows its way around a technical fabric given their vast experience in the world of wetsuits. For their signature Mirage boardshort, they tapped LA-based artist KFiSH for a vibrant print with a hand-painted feel. 

Quiksilver Highline Vacancy Scallop

Quiksilver’s rich and storied history of the Scallop boardshort has been enough to attract a robust following of loyal customers. Adding an artful, colorful palm frond print to a foundation as sturdy as the Scallop is bound to make these one of your favorite non-black boardies. 



Volcom Alienated Stoney


Hemp fiber, 4-way stretch, and featuring the art of one Ozzy Wrong, this Volcom boardie provides a wonderful canvas for a creative rendition of pink, yellow, and blue-haired alien women. A truly unique print that won’t last long.

Roark Jellyfish 


Roark has a full smattering of travel-inspired prints. You can buy these knowing that they’re rooted in their team’s encounter with jellyfish in some far off land. Genuine, unique, and well-fitting, we promise you won’t be disappointed. 

O’Neill Hyperfreak Nomad

O’Neill has a boardshort range as deep as anyone (currently 9 pages long on their site). Their contribution to the The Best Printed Boardies of 2020 comes in the form of these overdyed indigo palms on their tried and tested Hyperfreak model. One thing with prints is they tend to show dirt more easily than plain boardies. The neutral palette of the Nomad’s will help to combat that problem
