We’ve spent a lot of time ensuring the things you get from us are built to last. But, if you show them the right care, they’ll last even longer – and stay out of the landfill.
Read on for our suggestions on how to care for your boardshorts.
Less Laundering. Less Impact.
When you wash your boardshorts – especially those with polyester construction – they ‘shed’ microfiber plastics that often end up in our oceans. Whenever possible, we suggest spot-treating and hang-drying our garments. This ultimately saves water, is easier on your gear extending longevity and reduces microfiber shedding.
Washing machines can be pretty brutal on boardshorts over time. Aside from shedding microfiber plastic, they can wreak havoc on the seams, the water-repellency and the longevity of the short. Whenever possible, wash by hand with fresh water and gentle soap. If you absolutely have to wash them in a machine, we suggest a side-load washer without a center agitator as this will be easier on your gear and help extend its longevity.
Never put your boardshorts in the dryer. It’s hot in there. Really hot. This is especially true with our Weld Boardshort, but applies to the rest of our line. Always, always, always hang them on your backyard fence or a line to air dry.
