The Quiksilver Highline New Wave Pro Boardshorts may use new fabrics and even technology, but they stay true to the company’s history and original vision. Quiksilver got its start in 1969 in Torquay, Australia, as an outfitter for ocean and mountain lovers. Today the company is based out of Huntington, California. The brand is largely synonymous with surfing, and the Highline New Wave plays right into that heritage.
The 19-inch boardshorts for men are made of Quiksilver’s technical Highlite 4-way stretch fabric, which is 85 percent nylon and 15 percent Elastane. The shorts also feature a DryFlight hydrophobic coating that helps repel water, keeping you drier, lighter, and active longer. The waistband is made of F’N Lite neoprene for extended comfort and uses a cinch tie closure with a cinch lock drawcord. The fly uses a neo fly closure while the back pocket has a heat-welded zipper that will keep your cargo secure. The seams are all laser cut and heat bonded for better durability.
Quiksilver has certainly had its share of highs and lows, but given its ability to consistently innovate and improve, its effortlessly remained a favourite amongst Australians (and the rest of the world) who ride waves.
