Though once for just surfers, Nike board shorts are now enjoyed as a fashion essential for summertime. These shorts are durable, holding up to constant friction on a surfboard, and dry quickly. The quick-drying property is useful for those who enjoy water sports, because a long drying time—or a change of clothes—isn't necessary if you want to play volleyball right after swimming. This swimwear isn't limited to the beach, however. Today's board shorts are enjoyed anywhere that casual shorts are worn.
Nike board shorts for men are sometimes called “boardies” or “baggies.” Usually, these shorts tie at the waist, but some modern versions are elastic for quickly slipping on and off in a busy beach bathroom. Adopted by skaters, these shorts are long and can double as walking shorts. Some are solid colors and others come with fun, colorful prints.
Boys can enjoy board shorts as play shorts or as swim trunks. For casual wear, pair the shorts with a tee shirt and sandals or boat shoes. This is a great look for swim parties, lakeside picnics, backyard cookouts and many other summer occasions. Some guys enjoy wearing these like boxer shorts because they're comfortable around the house.
Girls also have great selections of Nike board shorts. These are great for vacation because there isn't much wait time for the shorts to dry before tossing them in the suitcase. At the beach or pool side, these shorts double as swimsuit bottoms and look great with halter tops, tank tops and bikini tops. Toss a tee shirt in the beach bag, and there's no need to pack a swimsuit cover. This outfit goes great with sandals or flip-flops and is a simple outfit for hitting the local beach shops and grabbing a hamburger between swims.
