Wellen ’66 Stretch Boardshort

Published By

1966 was the year of The Endless Summer, when American moviegoers were introduced to Bruce Brown’s wildly popular surf documentary — and the idea that, if you had enough time and money, you could follow the summer surfing season from the Northern to the Southern hemisphere and back again. 

Wellen is keeping that dream alive, even in a small way, with their ‘66 Stretch Boardshorts: A picture-perfect piece of vintage surfwear style. All of the authentic details are there, from the contrast hem to the drawstring waist to the bungee loop back pocket. 

But where vintage shorts looked a lot better than they felt, Wellen’s ‘66 boardshorts use modern materials to give a comfortable custom fit. That includes a four-way stretch that moves with you, and strong moisture-wicking materials that dry quickly as soon as you’re out of the water. Even if you won’t be following the sun around the world, these shorts will keep your summertime spirits high.
