Design Your Own Boardshorts from Quiksilver
With Father's Day just around the bend, here's a little idea that'd put a grin on some dads' faces. Quiksilver offers custom designed boardshorts through their website—users simply jump on, pick a style, length, waist size, some colors for each panel, pocket, waistband and even the thread. For extra fun you can add up to 13 letters of embroidery on the pocket. Something like "DAD RULES" works almost too nicely. They're sewn by hand right in Huntington Beach, CA from Quiksilver's celebrated water-repellant, no-rash, 4-Way Stretch Diamond Bobby material that you'll find being worn by the likes of champ surfer Kelly Slater.
No, it's not cheap, but very reasonable. Your custom designed-by-you boardshorts will cost $99 with free shipping right to your door. Considering all the custom options and choices, premium material, U.S.A. labor and super fun process, I'd say it's a bang-up deal.
