Our ideal summer is spent on the water catching waves. Whatever your plans are – an epic surf trip this summer or shorter weekday beach trips – it's important you're well equipped. When it comes to surf gear, every item in your kit has to be lightweight and durable, but a focus on function doesn't mean you have to forget style. Quality boardshorts are a summer surf trip staple – and if you're still holding on to that pair you've had since the early Aughts, it's time to move on. Boardshorts have come a long, long way in recent years; many of the best surfers in the world take a hands-on approach to help design products that are made for extreme performance. Whether you're an avid surfer hunting for pre-dawn peaks or the more casual type who prefers to post up on the sand and watch the world drift by, we've got you covered below. Before you head out, scope these eight packable must-haves that'll guarantee banging beach days all summer long.
