Wellen ’66 Stretch Boardshorts

Published By

I’m thinking about good vibrations. I’m not really, but it’s literally the song that comes to mind whenever I see a pair of Wellen boardshorts. For young Californians in the 1960s, surfing wasn’t just a hobby, it was a way of life and Wellen has embraced this old-school aesthetic with the ‘66 Stretch Boardshorts. 

The design of these shorts harken back to the minimalist days of 1960s SoCal, also where the Wellen brand was born. Exuding laid back vibes combined with a modern-day rebelliousness, the retro boardshort has been updated thanks to a bit of stretch (hello spandex), and quick-drying, moisture-wicking materials that will take you from beach-to-street in no time. The back patch pocket comes with a bungee loop for your keys, and a drawcord waist makes sure they stay in place. Available in three sun-faded colorway options – Cochineal, a soft red, Navy, and Tobala Green.
