Love Letters

1998 - 2017.  19 years shipping our California-Made stuff all over the world.  And making lots of people happy.  And we can do the same thing for you.  Thanks for spreading the love, friends.  

Just wanted to let you know how much I love your board shorts... I take them on every vacation and every dive I go on..Fantastic quality and fit.... Thank you.  Maria (North Hollywood, CA) 


I've ordered from you guys for as long as I can remember. love all the options and especially that your shorts fit REAL WOMEN. will be ordering for my son soon. thanks! Kimberly (Gainesville, GA)
Thank You so much for the unbelievable board shorts.  I stumbled across your website while typing in long board shorts in Yahoo search engine.  You guys popped up and after some research I decided to try and have you build me a pair.  I love that you will make any length and they are completely custom to the individual.  I am 6'3" and have very long legs so typical board shorts just look goofy on my frame.  I had you build 15 in inseam shorts and when I got them I immediately ordered a second pair.  You folks make a great product.  The stitching is very strong and the material dries very quickly.  They are the perfect length, color, and I love the style. Thank You so much for being well priced and making such an exceptional product.  I will recommend you guys to anyone looking for quality swim wear.  I love my new beach gear. Joshua (Escondido, CA)

Just got my third pair of custom made board shorts. It is tough for me to find a good fit with my tall, thin frame. I absolutely love the quality and custom fit of the new shorts. I still have and use my other 2 pair that I have had for a few years now. I will continue to order from you. They are well worth the little extra price to find a quality, custom fit. Thanks again! Dean (Billings, MT)

Just received my board shorts. Exactly what I wanted. Thank you. Burt (Sacramento, CA)

I received the board shorts. They fit perfectly. I'm so happy. They are great. Thank you so much.  Andrew (Bronx, NY)

Thank you so much. He likes his new board shorts. They are very nice looking and I love that they are made here in out great country.  Ember (Ventura, CA)

It's been awhile. Such durable shorts that have lasted so long. I just lost weight and my waist is thinner. Great pair of shorts. One of a kind here on Maui.  Thank You.  Michael (Kahului, HI)





 I received my shorts and I love them thank you so much. I'm super excited. I know. They're just shorts. But they are awesome. Thank you again. Belinda (Houston, TX)  

Love your products and am happy to return for another purchase -thank you!! Corrina (Richfield, MN)

Kenny Chesney:

I received the capri and pink shorts today - they are AMAZING!  so happy….  Gin (Telluride, CO)

I loved my first pair so much, I had to get a second pair! Thank you for such a great product. Nancy (Portsmouth, VA)

I received my new board shorts on Wednesday, and I must say they are more phenomenal than i ever imagined!!! I'm not a fan of sun screen so these will help keep my knee's covered while floating lazily down the river in my kayak with my legs dangling out. I'm going to end up buying a few more of these without question! (I'll need a pair to go with my wakeboard setup, and I think i want a pair for just wearing around the house haha :))  Shawn (Cincinnati, OH)

Just received my great board shorts! Perfect fit, and shipped ahead of my vacation time, as you promised. Thanks so much you guys! Fantastic product, fast and efficient service and nice people to do business with. We'll pass it on here in California ? Happy Summer! Melody (Aliso Viejo CA)

Thank you. The board shorts I kept are the best I have ever owned.  Proud to support US manufacturing!  Maureen (Concord, NH)

Thank you!! I am excited to get my new shorts for our trip :-)  I tell everyone about board shorts world! You guys make the best stuff! Natalie (Phoenix, AZ)

Well I'm almost 7 feet tall and can't find shorts long enough anywhere. So right on guys - your shorts are cherry.  Fits perfectly and I will definitely order more in the future. Kevin (Corona, CA)

Yay!!! I love doing business with y'all! The skirts are the bomb! Shannon (Ninety Six, SC)

Thank you!  I LOVE my board shorts.  Wearing them over the last many years has given me so much confidence and joy.  Marlea (Southlake, TX)

Shorts just arrived. Fit is perfect.  Love them.  Thanks for all your prompt emails.  Will definitely recommend you to friends and will be ordering from u again.  Paulette (Redmond, WA)

Thanks again.... you saved my vacation big time!!  Love your board shorts.... they look the best out of all I've researched on line.  Pat (Itaska, IL)

Just got my order.  Shorts are even more amazing when they fit!  And the T-Shirt is pretty sweet and really nice quality.  I'm telling you - with shorts trending towards being shorter and tighter, I thought I was lost until I found you guys.  You saved my summer living for sure.  I will pay a little more for American made.  Besides, the quality of your product is really superior to most (if not all else) that is out there.  What else can I say.  I am really happy.  Thanks again.  I will be returning for future needs.  Sean (Las Vegas, NV)

I own several pairs of your board shorts and absolutely love them and love dealing with your company – keep up the great work!   Coleen (Conestoga, PA)

I am 6'7" and slender build.  I've had to search for pants and shorts that I felt fit my frame all my life; the custom order board shorts I received are the most comfortable, fitting and stylish I've ever had.  Thank you for providing this option to everyone that doesn't necessarily conform to standard sizes.  I searched online exhaustively and nothing came close; the price is worth the product and would recommend 110%!  Jon (Bolingbrook, IL).

Hi....my order arrived an hour ago!  Love both my Hipster Skirts. The colors are vibrant, and the cut on the skirts is perfect. Can't wait to wear them in Jamaica! Thank you so much for sending them out so quick. Leslie (Farmington, MI)

Thank you! I received my shorts! I love them and just ordered a second pair. Kathleen (Arlington, TX)

Great to support a family business :) My order, capri boardies, arrived today and I am rapt. Thank you! I have extensive scarring to my groin and backs of my legs so I feel self-conscious about swimming - even though I love the water. You have given me a brand new lease of freedom to play in the water with these capris. Thank you so much! With gratitude. Rayeleen (Perth, Western Australia)

Just thought I would pop you a quick email to let you know that my board shorts have arrived and “I LOVE THEM!!!!!!”  Thank you so much for your diligence in following this order through and ensuring I received them on time. They are a true quality item that I will be proud to wear. Not to mention brag about so I expect you will be getting more business from my end between myself and all the friends I tell.  Thank you so much, I appreciate such an efficient and wonderful service. Kind regards, Sandra (Sydney, Australia)



Just received my shorts today from my partner and i'd just like to say I'm deadset over the moon with the whole garment. These are awesome shorts.  I've been looking for shorts like these for 20 odd years and none have come close to my liking. Thank you so very much. Cheers,  FROM ONE HAPPY AUSSIE !!  Katrina (Gawler, South Australia)

I received my skirt today. It's beautiful. Just want to say THANK YOU for making my skirt. It fits perfect! I LOVE all my 12 skirts from Board Short World! I'll be ordering more skirts in the future, I live in them all summer. Thanks again. Dottie (Kennebunkport, ME)

I wanted to pass on that my son loves his board shorts swimsuit! He is very tall an lanky and hard to fit with pants/shorts, so to be able to have a swimsuit made to fit him and have it fit him perfectly is wonderful! we will be ordering again when he is in need for a swimsuit. I need to have my husband take a look at your site. THANK YOU! Kellie (Silver Spring, MD)

I wanted you to know that I I I I

 

 

 

 

 

I received my board shorts yesterday and they are exactly what I wanted and fit great. Thank you so much for the personal attention and making sure I got the Citrus Dots. They are so cute. I am ready for my beach vacation and I will be so comfortable as I tackle learning to paddle board.  Plan to buy more shorts as I need them. Thanks again. Kama (Sacramento, CA)

I wanted to say thank you.  I received my board shorts yesterday.  I was a little iffy when ordering because of the price.  However, I could not be happier.  I absolutely love them. Worth every cent. Thank you again. Dianna (Summit Hill, PA) 


Y'alls business must be doing great!   The company is about as ethical, courteous and professional as I have ever been associated with.  God will make great things happen for y'all.  Thank you for now and for the future. Curtis (Sarasota, FL)

Thank you so much. The swim trunks arrived today and fit perfectly. I know that we will be a repeat customer. My son is 6'll" and is happy to have trunks that are long enough. Anne (King of Prussia, PA)

We received our order today.  It well exceeded my expectations!  I love it. Thanks so much. Liz (Geneva, OH)

When I first tried my board shorts on I wasn't 100% sure I wouldn't bust a seam. Finding durable clothing for a big round woman isn't an easy thing. But last night I had them on for a kayak class. In the water,  out of the water,  over the stern attempting the kayak cowboy scramble, I put the shorts through things that would have shredded anything I had bought previously . I 

I just received my order (one pair of long boardshorts, and one pair of capris) and I am SO HAPPY with them! Being a tall girl (just shy of 6 feet) and curvy (size 18-20), finding swim cover ups or shorts I am comfortable with and that fit has proven next to impossible... until I happened upon your site. Your customer service is fantastic as well - I had a minor issue with checkout using Google Wallet, and your representative Steve Williams was wonderful. I must stress that the issue was on Google's side - but it was YOUR representative Steve who was friendly, responsive, and made sure my order went through to my satisfaction. I will be back, and will be sure to recommend you to others! Karen (Kingston, NH)

Hey guys - just wanted to say a big thank you for your shorts!  I've just placed my third order for plus size women's shorts.  They've changed my confidence at the pool - stylish coverage that I feel awesome wearing.  Thank you for everything. Meredith (Fort Lauderdale, FL)

Thank you so much! I took the two pair of shorts on my vacation to Mexico and absolutely loved them! What I especially loved about them is that I not only wore them in the water, but I also wore them as casual shorts. I will definitely be ordering again, I'm trying to shed some pounds and then I will order several in different colors for my next vacation.  Thanks again!  Maria (Denver, CO)

They came in time and fit perfectly!!  Thank you so much!  I love the fit, I will be back!  Tina  (Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA) 

I just opened the package containing the custom made board shorts for my teen-aged son. It is corny to say but I almost cried when he put them on. We have been EVERYWHERE looking for board shorts that cover his knees - we tried Quiksilver, Volcom, Patagonia - all to no avail. He is just under 6 feet and has a 31 inch waist. Anything that fit his waist was miles too short. We spend all summer at the beach here in Long Island, including surfing and he insisted on board shorts to or below his knees with the flat tie waist. No elastic. I searched online and found your site on a surfer discussion board. Measured him carefully and sent off our order. Absolutely perfect! The smile spread across his face and then to mine. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your custom shop. We will be back on the site tomorrow picking another color and ordering a second pair. And when he grows again next year we plan to be back. Thanks again." Saralyn (Lynbrook, NY)

Just wanted to let you know that my hard-to-fit son (who, until now, only wore basketball shorts to swim in) LOVES his new Board Shorts!  I am glad that I found your store on the web.  Thanks for making swimwear with a relaxed fit for the average person. Mary (Coral Springs, FL)

My board shorts arrived today - just in time for my holiday to Bali tomorrow. I love, love, love, them… thank you.  Perfect fit, comfortable and they look great.  In Australia there is nowhere to buy the longer length colourful board-shorts for women………its all the really short shorts, which for many of us over 40… we don’t look good in. I will certainly recommend you to my friends.  Kind Regards, Narelle – from downunder Australia! 

Bought Shorts from you back in 2005 and still love them, glad to see you guys are still in business. Mickey (Tampa, FL)

We have a boat and I live in these all summer. My boater friends have liked others I have had and not sure I want to let them in on my new secret I just came across with your company!!! I will be back!! Heading to Florida shortly will be taking these along!! Pam (Chesterfield, MI)

Thank you so much for my order! The shorts are exactly as I imagined and hoped they would be! Thinking about ordering the next size down, though, since I'm in between sizes right now! They are great quality, super comfortable, and flattering!!!! Finally a pair of board shorts built for women!!!!! THANK YOU! Jessica (Peoria, AZ)

Oh thank you guys sooo much, I am getting ready to write a GLOWING report for you guys on Yelp, you have just been WONDERFUL to work with and your product ROX!!! Dawn (Kent, WA)

I still have and wear two pair of board shorts I got from you--best EVER. The things just don' wear out. When the weather turns I'll be back on your site, probably ordering another pair of surf trunks. Great product you make.  Tom (Dallas, TX)

I received my shorts yesterday. They are better than I expected. I am very impressed with the speed of my order. I live in the middle of Wyoming, and even from Florida the service was exceptionally quick. Thanks for outstanding American made products! Jacob (Worland, WY)

For the past two years I have purchased a pair of swim trunks for my son Peter on his birthday. He loves them. I love them too, but he won't let me wear them. So, I am buying myself TWO pair, and I will not let him wear either pair. They are all mine unless of course my wife Barb would like to model a pair!!! I can hardly wait to get them. Incidentally, your fabrics are great, and since I am only 72 years old and have many more years of surfing left in me, I will be back for more shorts. Yes!! Shannon (Prairie Village, KS)

I did want to say that I love, love, love the board shorts and skirt and capris that I bought from you. The material is very nice and the fit is true to size and flattering. I am 65. I hate seeing the sagging thighs of older women and mine aren't too bad but still the long shorts cover a multitude, if you know what I mean. Plus I feel cool in my board shorts! Gretchen (Huron, OH) 

Just got my shorts. 1) I had some trouble with ordering from the the site on a Sunday - late afternoon.  I sent an email and within 2 hours I received a phone call and it was taken care of.  2) Order arrived earlier than promised. 3) Quality was excellent. 4) Big plus MADE IN USA!!!!!  5) Well worth the price.  I will be back. Thank you.  Marjorie (Wilcox, AZ)

Here are a few photos of us enjoying the lifestyle in St. John.  BTW the Xelos board shorts are fabulous - it is so hard to find a variety of inseam lengths and as you can see they fit awesome!!  
Mary (Davidson, NC)

I recently bought my first pair of shorts, and I'm back again. I love them and now I'm completely hooked. I only wish I didn't live in Minnesota so then I could wear them year round. I will be a loyal customer and spread the word. Thank you for having such quality clothing that is made in the USA. Bonnie (Roseville, MN)

Here is a picture of my friends and I while on a dive trip to Roatan Honduras.  Every year we get a pair of matching board shorts from you all.  This year will be the fifth year we have carried on the tradition.  Thanks for making our dive trips more memorable. Linda (McDonough, GA)

Love them, love them, love them. Thank you so much. Karrie (San Antonio, TX)

I just placed another order! My son went on a boat trip today and his cousins are now all asking me to get them shorts! Two weeks ago I also placed an order for my son's cousin who is an extra large. It's so great to be able to customize! The boys are loving the double pockets and the longer length! Fantastic! We are leaving for vacation next week, I've already packed 5 for my son, he is going to look great on the beaches we will visit!  Just wanted to let you know!  Michelle (Springfield Gardens, NY)

Love your product. Unfortunately had to come back and get bigger size but wouldn't buy any other board shorts! Shelly (Lindale, TX)

First of all, I love y'alls shorts! I've been very impressed w the quality & the feel of the material. I just ordered a pair of boy blue circuit breaker for my step son & they just came in today. I absolutely love the pattern & colors!  My question is will y'all have the same shorts in men's size 32 anytime soon or ever again???  If y'all had them in stock I was going to order them today. Thanks and God Bless the USA.  Chad (Cameron, SC)

Got my shorts in the mail today!!  I actually really like the black solid with white stitching! And they are fabulous as always - love love these boardshorts. Lezlee (Salt Lake City, UT)

3 years ago I bought a pair of the capris (spring something in yellow). I've worn the capris in and out of the water, wave boarding, gardening, and just hanging out. The capris still look as good as the day the shipment arrived. Great product! Great quality! Easy care! Great price! Thanks! Jan (Anaheim, CA)

I got my custom order board shorts today and they are ABSOLUTELY perfect! I am a big girl and swimsuits have ALWAYS been the worst part of summer for me. Now I will feel confident and comfortable playing on the beach and swimming. Thank you guys so much, if you were here you would see me crying; I am so happy!! Jen M. (New Mexico)

Love the personal service. So rare these days. No worries on the timing. Sounds like about 2 weeks door-to-door and that's fine. Happy about the "East of Eden" print since it was one of my first choices. Please send many "We never heard of you either" stickers with my order! While I have you captive, I'll take the time to say that I liked your site from the start. Having read a National Geographic article on slavery in the modern age, I am pleased to support any company that places integrity above profit. On top of that you have by far the best fabric selection and the web site is easy to navigate. I had a blast picking out my stuff. Even my mom may be buying some board shorts after visiting the site. I have already recommended your site to a few friends and provided everything fits, I look forward to doing business with you from now on.  Thanks again, Sara (Mission Viejo, CA)

My husband and I just scheduled a last minute cruise not thinking that we wouldnt be able to find him some board shorts. Considering its still snowing and cold where we live in Utah we werent too surprised when we couldnt find anything in our local sotres. I hadnt heard of your company before so was a little skeptical when i sent my order...but we just got my husbands Xelos in the mail and they are perfect. You have an awesome selection of styles and sizes...The ordering process was soooo easy and my expedited order came just as scheduled. In a town that needs good places to buy board shorts, Ill definitely recommend you to our friends. Thank You, Amanda (Orem, UT)

I just wanted to write to let you know how happy I am with my recent board shorts purchases. I had an outstanding order for nearly a year for some skulls boardies that was a source of frustration for me, and I am sure for you as well. I was really happy to return to www.boardshortworld.com to find that you made a change to your web site that indicates the number of pairs of shorts in stock in a particular size. This is wonderful!!!!  Now I know if what I want is in stock before placing an order. I love your board shorts, and will recommend you to all my friends.  Sincerely, Rebecca (Orlando, FL)

Just wanted to say thank you. I ordered my shorts on Thursday and they arrived on Saturday!
Wow! Thank you for a great product and wonderful service. I will order again!
Ruth (Columbus, OH) 

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for your assistance with the exchange of my board shorts. I received the replacement shorts in the mail yesterday.
I was impressed with your board shorts and even more impressed with your customer service. I've told several people about your help with the exchange and they too are impressed, so much so they will be ordering from you soon. I will continue to order from you as well as recommend you to anyone will listen. Thank you again. I love the board shorts. Sincerely, Jean (Virginia Beach, VA)

I am delighted with your service, your products, and your variety of fabrics. The fit is “true” and very comfortable. Your pricing is competitive, your selection is unmatched, and your website is very user-friendly. I will certainly be ordering from you again. Sandra (Lake Elsinore, CA)

OMG, love the shorts! 12's are too big though (that never happens!), and our cruise is on the 23rd. So - I'll just re-order them in 10's (and another pair!) and send back the 12's separately for a refund as your FAQs suggest. Just want to be sure I get them in time. Thanks, can't wait to wear them! Laurie (Kansasville, WI)

Thank You So Much! for cranking out some of the best boardshorts I have ever worn! The quality and care that goes into each pair of shorts is amazing and the fabric choices that you have just ROCK! Simply Awesome! Thanks again for everything that you do TOTALLY COOL! Angie W. (Columbus, OH)

You guys are fantastic. I'll be ordering again within the next couple of months, and have already been spreading the word about your killer product, your world-impact ethic, and your stellar customer service. Thanks again for your impeccable service. You're doing something great for women who don't necessarily have the body types of the average 17 year-old but still have style and taste that hasn't gone the way of the "matron" look.  Thank you! Rachel (Dover, NH)

I did get the first pair - everyone on the cruise to KeyWest was jealous. I need the "Getaway Car" shorts for my trip to Hawaii - please keep me updated if the shorts will take more than 2 weeks. Thanks. Tom (Avon Lake, OH) I just received my board shorts and they are AMAZING. These are the best board shorts, quality-wise AND fit-wise, I have EVER found...and I have owned numerous pairs. The material is the best quality ever. I will NEVER shop anywhere else. I even sent an email to every woman I know so that they can get a pair of these for themselves. These are a must-have. Thank you for the excellent service, and the timely shipping. I truly appreciate it since I leave in just a few days! I will definitely be back to purchase more. Sincerely, Sunshine (Houston, TX)

Good news, my post office had the other package! I love the items I purchased, the quality is fantastic! Your size charts were right on the money, I took your advice and purchased a size larger than I normally wear and they fit perfectly. Kudos to your company, not only do you deliver a great product but your customer support is personal, friendly and super efficient! It is nice to find a place where those of us who aren't a size 4 can find a great variety of swim wear! I will be doing business with you in the future and so will my friends! Take care and best of luck to you and your company!  Kathy (Hollywood, MD)

Hi, I must tell you , I ordered and received 3 pairs of board shorts today and I love hem, I ordered 6 pairs 2 years ago and wore them as bathing suit bottoms with assorted tops every day as I live on the beach in mass, everyone complimented me on them and I am sure they will love the 3 I ordered this week, they wear and wash beautifully, I would like to know if you have them in a gold color, I saw silver, thanks, Alice (Hull, MA)

I love the shorts! As does my daughter. When I buy clothes that my 20-something daughter likes, that's a miracle. Jeannie (Orinda, CA)

Hi Steve. The Fed Ex'd board shorts arrived just a bit ago. They're perfect!! Thanks for pulling this off for me, you saved the day! You guys are awesome! Kim (North Branch, MN)

Hey Julie! Thank you sooooo much! I love the shorts. That was very nice of you. This has been a wonderful shopping experience. If there's an owner that I can write to about you, please let me know. If the other order ever shows up, I promise I will send them back to you. BTW...The stickers are very cool. We put them on our boat! Here's some free advertising for you in Seattle! Best Wishes, Lisa (Seattle, WA)

Got the shorts today...thank you so much for all of your help...I LOVE them!!!!!  Cheers, Heather (Laguna Beach, CA)

Hi, I am a first-timer to your site and all I have to say is THANK GOD GOOGLE FOUND YOU! Over the past four days I have ordered two shipments of 3 pairs of board shorts from another site. I carefully measured everything to make sure things would fit correctly, but with my second shipment... nothing does. Your site is right, they catered to juniors and not women. I have searched and searched the Net and frankly, I don't even know how I stumbled upon you. THANK YOU!!! Sara (Davis, CA)

Hi, I bought a pair of your long boardshorts last year, and I absolutely love them. I bought a size 20, but now I'm a bit smaller. Can you tell me the waist size on a size 18? Thanks so much, I can't wait to order my next pair! Gretel (Iowa City, IA)

These XELOS shorts are BULLET PROOF, just as you said. Over 65 washes, so far, and exposure to muriatic acid and liquid chlorine. The washing has actually made them look better! These shorts are great.  I would like to order more, now that I have truly put them to the test. Thanks for a great product. John (Sarasota, FL)  

Hi Steve, I am practically dancing with happiness over here! My board shorts are absolutely PERFECT for me! The size 12s are quite big so they hang really low on the hip and nearly come to my knees - like I'm wearing my husbands shorts - and I LOVE them like that. Can you add another pair in solid black to my order? If the time constraint makes it too difficult to pull off on time - no problem - I'll take the black shorts when you can send them. Thank you so much! I can't tell you how many times I've tried on a pair of "swim shorts" only to stare numbly into the mirror at the reflection of my Mom looking back at me. Ha! Seriously, it's nice to get decent coverage that doesn't leave you looking like "Grandma!" And, as appropriate swimsuit offerings for women in between the teen and middle age groups are so few and far in between, I know a good thing when I wear it. It's really valuable to find swim wear that looks both flattering and cool! You can count on my repeat business. And I'm sure you'll be hearing from my four similarly swimsuit-tortured sisters as well!  Sincerely, Kelly (Avalon, NJ)

Just got them. I'm a happy customer. Again.THANKS!! Gary (White Bear Lake, MN)

Thanks so much! You guys rock!  Adrienne (Glen View, IL)

Hey thank you so much! I tried on my board shorts and I absolutely love them! They are so soft and comfortable. Misty (Sidney, MT)

I'll be patient :) I have stuff I can take on vacation. I've outgrown a pair of your boardshorts and liked them best. I don't love what I have right now, but if the board shorts don't get here in time what I have will do.......and I'll love your boardshorts all summer long once I get them.  Thanks. Any day now is good enough. Bobbie (Story City, IA)

My shorts arrived with perfect timing so I could enjoy them on my trip to AZ. Thank you for getting them out to me when you did. I love them and will be sharing your website with all my friends! They fit so well and I am thankful you have sizes for us bigger ladies. What a blessing and relief. I will be ordering more from you in the future! I am going to look great in my board shorts on my cruise next month when I hit the pool. Thank you!  Sara (Grand Terrace, CA)      

Okay--so it's not the most flattering picture ever, but I rocked my board shorts for almost a week straight on a white water trip through the Grand Cayon.  This pic is taken after much peer pressure to jump off the waterfall. It may not look high but the jump off surface was slick with moss & there's a big ole rock in the water that would be a 'bad' thing to land on :-) The other photo is just looking around--so much to see.  Maybe not enough of THE shorts--but they were by far my favorite thing to wear each day!  THANKS! Laura (Seattle, WA)

Hello, I received my board shorts today and LOVE THEM! I have had an awful time with fit and yours are perfect; waist not too low, exact fit for hips, length and waist. I could not be more pleased. Please tell me the other pair is on the way as I am off for vacation in mid February and must have them.
Great work! Monti (Grass Lake, MI)

MY NEW BEST FRIENDS.........GREAT STUFF  Robert (Babylon, NY)

Thank you so much! I will definitely be sharing your site with my friends (lots of wakeboarders who love board shorts!) Lisa (Seattle, WA)

Hi Steve, I received my shorts yesterday and the fit is PERFECT! They're very comfortable and right in time for lake season and vacation! Thanks again for all of your help and I look forward to doing business with you again soon. My husband wants some of the shorts now. Sincerely, Diane (Lake of the Ozarks, MO)

Ok...Great.....go ahead and send the white (Grizzo) and the girls 14's in "Charm School" red. Thank you again for making sure I've gotten this done before my vacation. You are great Julie and if I need shorts again I will definitely be getting them from you :) Christy (McKinleyville, CA)

Woo Hoo!! I just got my shorts in the mail.....I LOVE THEM!!! I will be buying a black pair in the next couple of weeks. Thanks again for an excellent product. Dolly (Rogers, AR)

I LOVE my boardshorts and I know some of my friends and family will be ordering from you real soon. The "Jimmy Buffet" shorts (your "Hurry Sundown" print) were a hit in Miami...I was there this past week and I had so many compliments on them! :o) Amanda (Gainesville, FL)

I am sooo very pleased! Thank you so much for your excellent product and SERVICE. These suits will make my Mexico vacation even better. Oh, and I think I got the "original" length in the black shorts (can't be sure, but they don't have the side pocket like the other ones) - anyway, they fit awesome. They are still nice and baggy but slightly shorter, sportier ("even more flattering" according to hubby) - I LOVE THEM, TOO!  I'll be shopping with you again this Summer. THANKS AGAIN! Fiona (Lafayette, CA)

Hi, Julie! Just letting you know I received the shorts! They're awsome! Worth waiting for the second pair!!! Thanks again. Charlene (Laughlin, NV)

Just wanted to say thanks for getting our board shorts to us so quickly and thank you again for working with me on the colors. We love them! I am looking forward to receiving my next pair in a couple of weeks!  Thanks again, Jodi from Virginia

Thank you for your call today regarding my recent order. That is a big improvement from last year's customer service!!!! I ordered a board skirt last year (which by the way is perfect!!!) and it took a full month to receive my order. I have however recommended your product to countless others, although I have told them sometimes it takes a while. Thank you again for your follow up on my order. Pamela (Indianapolis, IN)

Thanks!! So glad I found you guys, you'll be hearing from me again!! Linette (Monrovia, CA)

Thank you for your suberb customer service!! Michelle (Raymond, NH)

Got the boardshorts yesterday! They are PERFECT! Fit is amazing and I love them...so pleased. The bikini tops, however, are too big. I ordered a M/L (wishful thinking??), but it looks like I need a small in those. Tags are on, never been worn. Can I ship them back to y'all for an even exchange with the smaller size?? Thanks! Lisa (Dallas)

I am 6 ft tall with most of my height in my legs (my femurs are long for my height). I have never been comfortable in bikinis nor do I want to wear boardshorts down to my knees. I have purchased a few pair of your LONG boardshorts in the past and have been happy with them. I have decided to order some custom made shorts with just a bit more length so I am more comfortable when seating down. I just know I am going to love them. Thanks for such a great product!! I can't wait to get my new longer version!! BTW, the board shorts I have purchased over the years still look fabulous--the fabric is terrific. LOVE IT!!! Thank you for offering great products that are made in the USA!!   Crystal (Granada Hills, CA)

Just received my order today. They are GREAT and such nice quality!! When I save up, will be back to you for some solid color ones. Again, thanks for your great product. Regards, Karen (Columbia, MD) 

Received the shorts today...really nice...recommended them to my daughter for our trip to Maui... Carol (Dyer, IN) 

Just got my shorts.  I love 'em.  Thank you for supporting our country and our people. Ron (Williams, AZ) 

Trunks arrived to day absolutely amazing !!!! Thank you for such excellent service Happy New Year to you all Best Wishes. Nigel (Perth, Western Australia)   

Great news!!!! They fit!! I could have done the 10, but I am so happy!! Quality is awesome and they were here when you promised!! Thanks!! Lenore (Sparks, NV) 

Hi, Are the board pants sized in the waist and hips the exact same way as the extra long board shorts with the non-elastic? I bought 4 pairs of shorts about 2 or 3 years ago. I absolutely love them and I could never go back to any other brand. Thanks, Ann (Isle of Palms, SC)  The answer is "YES"! (bsw.com) 

I'm sorry it has taken me such a long time to get back to you but I work overseas and internet can be difficult.  I ordered 3 pairs of shorts from you for an R&R I had in Bermuda, after some initial confusion, you were able to get them to me in the nick of time. I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with your shorts and how much attention they attracted. It is so nice in this day and age to receive a product that so far exceeds expectations. Thanks again and please keep your standards as high as they are!!! Sincerely, Paul (Putnam, CT) 

Thank You !! Order came today, a day sooner than expected and everything fits great. The quality and colors are great as well. Thanks Again, Sandie (Temecula, CA)

Bought a pair back in '07 and they still look brand new. I wear them in salt water and in chlorine. No fade. Totally awesome! Keep up the great product. Sherry (Port Charlotte, FL) 

Just wanted to say thanks for getting my order to me quickly.  I really like the board shorts and they fit which is a miracle after all the hiking shorts, kayak shorts, etc. I tried on before ordering them.  I'm returning the triangle top because it doesn't quite fit my DD's although the top was as you described it.  I'm just a little too jiggly to fit it.  Can you suggest a company that makes tops out of a similar fabric with a little more support?  I really like your fabric.  I am looking for a bikini/bra top not a tankini.  Thanks again for the great boardshorts and any info you might have on where to find a top. Michele (Coeur d'Alene, ID) 

Your board shorts rock!!! I've bought several and will continue to purchase them. Great product. Lauren (Haines City, FL) 

By the way, I really love your product. So many women I know wear like to wear shorts over their swimsuit bottoms for extra coverage. There really aren't a lot of great options out there that are quick-dry with good coverage. Some of my girlfriends actually buy men's swim shorts!  I cant do that they simply don't fit me.  Your product is perfect.  Yes, its expensive, but the shorts wear like iron and I love that they're made locally, so I believe they're worth the price.  I am constantly recommending your shorts!  Have a great day! Terri (Carrollton, TX) 

Got my board shorts today, I just love them thank you so much,  they came just in time, I am leaving today. You have a customer for life. Thanks again. Karen (Blairsville, PA) 

This was taken at the Bellagio in Las Vegas less than a year after I finished chemotherapy. Your shorts were perfect for the pool every day!  Thanks again, Mary Beth (Lenexa, KS)

They arrived and are wonderfully made.  I am so impressed!  Kate (Denver, CO) 

I got them today and I love, love them, so much in fact I am going to order a few more pairs. They are the most comfortable board shorts I have ever put on.  The fit is perfect. Thank you. Char (Yorktown, VA)

Greetings. I just received my order and wanted to let you know as many other have already said these shorts are awesome!!! I tried them on and loved them. I bought some other long board shorts a few weeks ago and was not happy with how low they fall on my hips The material is soft and quality is of utmost. Thank you again and will recommend to all family and friends. Regards, Maria (North Hollywood, CA)

I know you have so many Love Letters already, but I HAD to let you know that you have yet another thrilled customer. I absolutely Love your board shorts. It's about time someone made board shorts to fit the average - normal sized woman. I ordered one pair to try out... One day after they arrived I ordered another pair - and told several friends about them. Thank you for making such a wonderful - and much needed product!  Bonnie (Orlando, FL)  

Just wanted to send a HUGE thank you to you guys. I just received my new shorts all the way in Canada less than 24 hours from when I placed my order. Not only was shopping online great, and sizes perfect, the quality is fantastic! I haven't been that excited about an online purchase in years. I ended up planning a last minute trip to the beach for some R and R and I am so excited your shorts arrived on time. I might just have to order more! Again, a big thanks for amazing service and an even more amazing product!! Stephanie (Orleans, Ontario, CANADA) 

Thanks for the follow up! I love them!! I  am going to Hawaii Friday and I am so excited.  They look great! Thanks for thinking about board shorts for the plus size girl! Kim (Stoneboro, PA)

I bought 2 pairs of board shorts 7 years ago and used them nearly daily in the summers and they still look brand new.  I loved my old shorts but I lost so much weight I need new ones and am really excited about them.  Mary Catherine (Lyons, CO) 

I received the two shorts today and they fit perfectly!  I think my friends are going to want to order some as well as it is difficult to find these shorts around Stafford.  When we go to the beach, we always look in those surf shops but it's always the same boring colors. Looking forward to my third pair.  Love the shorts! Monica (Stafford, VA) 

Just a note to let you know that I received my 2 swimsuits today and they are awesome looking. You have a customer for life. Thanks for the great service, and please pass my thanks to your shop in CA. Rick (Erie, PA)

I just wanted to send you a note, to express my gratitude to you and your company. I received the shorts today, and they fit perfectly and in time for my vacation. First time I ever did business with you, but it definitely won't be the last. The professionalism, quality and speedy customer service was outstanding. Thank you for allowing me to say WELL DONE!  Dana (Wasilla, AK)

The Swim Shorts are GORGEOUS!!!.....The Quality Incredible.....My husband will look terrific. Thanks for delivering EXACTLY what you promised. I'll Be Back! Fran (New York, NY) 

I wanted to personally thank you folks for the sizes that fit real women! I think I have tried on every pair of board shorts in two counties and either half my backside hangs out the bottom of them or they are much too low in the front; not appropriate for a 38 yr old woman. I love the pattern and it matches my bathing suit perfectly. You have made my honeymoon in Hawaii so much better. I can now kayak, hike and frolic in paradise in comfort! I will certainly be ordering my fiance a pair or two very soon!  Best Regards, Tricia (South Gate, CA)

Hi there! Just wanted to let you know the short arrived.  They're great!  I'll start breaking them in next week - I'm heading out to a sailing school in the British Virgin Islands.  Can't wait! Thanks so much!
Marian (Columbus, OH) 

I received my shipment 43470  - the one in which I had to upgrade shipping so that I would receive it prior to my departure to a church kid's camp where I serve as a nurse.  I ordered the board shorts for the pool due to my sun sensitivity.   I believe that with the coverage of a board short I can protect more skin.  The patterns on the website do not give justice to the two great pairs of board shorts that arrived at my door on Saturday morning.  I am so excited and thankful that I will be able to protect my skin from the sun which for me really scars it.  I can't wait to wear my new board shorts. Thank You So much  - Shipping hassle and all!  Katie (Beaver, PA) RN-BSN 

Hi! Here's a photo of me loving my board skirt in St Vincent & the Grenadines.  

I wore it all the time and got so many compliments. I always said, wearing a cocktail print skirt is like wearing the jersey of my favorite team.   I told everyone your web address so hopefully you'll get some new followers.  Anyway just thought I'd see if you want to add this to your collage. Thanks for such an awesome product and for having a socially responsible company!  Julia (Ridgewood, NY)

Just received my board shorts today and they are awesome! I have owned and worn many different brands over the years, including the original Hobie Cat, Hang-Ten and O.P. Your shorts are definitely a cut above. They exceeded my  expectations. I will definitely return to your store.... Thanks Again, Donald (Mission Hills, CA)  

Keep 'em MADE IN USA.  I will be back!!!  Charles (San Antonio, TX)

Hello- here is a shot of me at the beach last week in Nassau, Bahamas…..I absolutely  love the board shorts, without them I would not have felt comfortable out on the beach in public…..thanks for a great product! Tisha (Corning, CA) 

Hi there. I have got to say that I LOVE my board shorts.  I ordered three sets and they are all fantastic.  I ordered them at 7:30 pm on a Sunday of a HOLIDAY weekend (4th of July) and got them that week.  Your folks were so nice and helpful.  Definitely Best In Class service that I would rank with the LL Bean's of the world.  I've worn and washed them many times - ocean water and chlorinated.  They look great! Thanks again. The picture is in St Maarten at Orient Beach. Janet (Bristol, CT)

Wow! We just got back from our honeymoon in Antigua . One week before we left, my husband and I came across your website. We placed an order and within 3 days, we had Matt’s new favorite item- his board shorts! I applaud you for offering a quality, stylish product for people who aren’t tiny! We will definitely shop again and thank you for a great product and excellent customer service.  Here is our submission photos. The first on is Matt enjoy our “all-inclusive” at Sandals Grande Antigua and the second is us getting ready for a great day at the beach!  Thanks again!  Matt and Lori Thompson (Sharpsburg, GA) 

Hello, I bought a pair of women's board shorts from you last summer especially for ACL Fest in Austin, Texas. Attached is a photo of a middle-aged, bonus-sized woman enjoying a hot, sticky, all-day, all-night, outdoor music festival, thanks to your comfortable apparel. Thanks! Maggie (Austin, TX)
