la puma de las olaswrote a review of Hurley Phantom 120 Board Short - Men's on February 7, 2010
I've used quite a few board shorts, and these are definitely my favorite. I have some bright blue ones that I've now used for a couple seasons in Hawaii, Costa Rica, and So-Cal during the summer and fall. The cut on hurley boardshorts is the best in my opinion. Patagonia and Quiksilver are close behind, and I can't stand Volcom or Billabong. Besides the awesome fit, the stretch on these is what it's all about. You can pull the bottom all the way down to your ankle, while the waist stays in place. That's rad, but it is really awesome when surfing. I can sit on my board comfortably without feeling all constricted. Oh yeah, I haven't gotten any chafing from these, plus they dry quickly so you can hike around town straight away after a session. If you surf in boardshorts a lot, take the plunge!
