Dakar Board Short - Black and Yellow
These board shorts fit well true to actual size they remind me of my 1960's surfer shorts...
I ordered a 30 and it made me realize that I need to lose a little around the old hips. But finally found a pair of shorts that fit my quads.
I had three pairs of the original board shorts (same styles, different colors). The older ones all developed problems with the zippered back pocket coming off (leaving my buttcheek flapping in the breeze), but the Dakar short moved that pocket to the side of the right leg, where it seems better attached and reinforced. Although the Dakar runs longer than the older shorts, there's also velcro added to the fly, so the fit at the waist is more like other board shorts and swim trunks I've worn. I love the new fit, pattern, and trim, and will be ordering the blue/red Dakar shorts soon.
A great, multipurpose pair of shorts. Can be used in the water or the gym and still look great. They wear a little longer than the other board shorts and are a little tighter, but they will make your legs look great.
