Vans Unveils Performance-Ready Boardshort Collection

With summer coming, Vans releases a collection of boardshorts featuring its signature Sturdy Stretch construction tested by surfing's elite.

Engineered with the feedback of Vans' own surf team, but fit for the average beach lounger, Sturdy Stretch technology utilizes a premium 4-way stretch fabric that provides best-in-class durability, in-water function and all-day comfort.

This new summer collection comes in two new colorways of the brand's signature styles featuring Sturdy Stretch, designed by surf icons and team riders Nathan Fletcher and Joel Tudor. Fletcher's Rising Swell combines Native American-inspired designs and geometric shapes with subtle colors, while Tudor's JT Trimline showcases a kelp leaf and floral print design across a 19" outseam silhouette showcasing classic Malibu styling.

Also, Vans introduces three new styles. Tudor expands with the JT San Elijo, named after one of his hometown breaks. It sports a vintage vibe with a tailored 18" fit. The Shorey features contrasting hues in a color block, zigzag pattern, while the Mixed Scallop is introduced in a range of colors with shorter hem and quick-drying materials.
