These are a couple of the ones she likes. I was just wondering if any of you have tried either of these brands/styles, and could give some insight on them.

She does want the full length shorts, and isn't particular about pockets and such. If there are others that you prefer, you could post those as well. Thanks for your help.

I like both of those. Honestly I wear men's longer board shorts because I got really big muscular thighs and women sizes don't cut it.

I normally buy mine from Pacsun, but the ones you picked out are nice too!

SexyWS6Mama, I know you said you wore men's shorts, but do you know if they're the same kind of material and such for the women's? I could kind of go off that because I'm not about to go into a store and start trying on girl's board shorts.

Oooooh I like both of those! I have tonnes of Billabong boardies, but personally I like the shorter ones, but that's purely a personal thing as I don't like to feel like I have restricted movement.

Plus all my boardies have at least a flash on hot pink in them, to match my board and bindings - sad I know! But I love the colour co-ordinated look Wink

That's a legitimate point that I wouldn't have thought of. Guys don't worry about restricted movement, they just want their shorts to reach their knees so they can cover up their long, eh... thighs. Laughing But, she picked those, so I guess she's okay with the longer ones.

Question, what kind of boardcolour does your friend have? Color of the helmet, vest???

She doesn't. She uses borrowed gear. My vest, my friend's board. She picked the colors. It goes with the black top she normally wears. I'm with you, I like the bright colors. I have a pair that are blue white and black and another that's yellow and brown plaid. I like people to see me coming I guess.

She'll only use the shorts to board in. She has to look hot and work on her tan while she's in the boat. Laughing Here's a picture of her wearing the black top.

I ordered her the black Hurleys. I hope I got the right size because I wanted it to be a surprise when we go ride next weekend and didn't ask her. Her waist size is just a little smaller than mine. My guess is about 30". I searched for Hurley size charts and came up with three different sizes. I picked size 3. Does that sound right? If they're not, I hope I pick a size that was too small. Laughing At least for my benefit that is.

Mmmmm for some reason they have a really weird way of sizing things. Be prepared for them to be a little on the loose side. From what your saying your gf is about the same size as me. I wear a size 1.

Well, @%&*. Maybe I'll still get lucky. They should be in pretty soon. If I put them on and they're a little tight, I'll probably be good. Do you know if they draw up any? I know mine don't, but I couldn't tell it the draw string went all the way around on these.
