Stay comfortable and fierce in this Kylon Boardshort, a short that gives you a classic print and secure fit to let you perform your best.
Such a great deal, easily the best board shorts I''ve ever bought. The material is thick without being heavy, will definitely last a long time. Waist run very true to size. These aren''t the most technical but the quality is there and the cut is great too. I wish I got the green before they sold out.
Very pleased with my purchase. I liked the style of the boardshorts online, and when they arrived they fit great and appear to be very high quality. I felt the price was reasonable and the best part was that they appear to be made in southern California. It seems rare to find clothing actually made here at home anymore, from what appears to be a smaller, non-corporate brand. Very rare indeed.

In the late 1950s, Nancy and Walter Katin were in the business of making canvas boat covers, and the $7 billion surf wear industry of today was all but unimaginable. Yet one day a young man came into the Katins shop in Surfside California, complaining of the difficulty in finding a pair of swim shorts durable enough to stand up to the then-quirky pastime of surfboard riding. Walter went to his sewing machine and with of the sturdy boat canvas and whipped up the first pair of Kanvas by Katin surf trunks. The surfer was stoked.
Word of Nancy and Walter's creation quickly spread up and down the coast, and the Katins were suddenly in the surf trunk business. The American surf wear industry was born. By the time the sport of surfing boomed in popularity in the mid-1960s with the Gidget/Beach Boys-era, Katins were firmly entrenched as the grooviest surf trunk around. The Katins kept making their high quality surf trunks, selling them from the surfside store and through a network of surf shop dealers all over the western hemisphere. From the sixties to the seventies, virtually every top surfer wore Katins and all were proud to appear in surf magazine ads for their favorite trunks.
"Quality, durability and good looks has long been the Katin motto and it’s our attention to detail which continues to separate Katin from the rest of the surfing pack."
