Surfs Up!
May 31, 2011

These are a great product! The color is super vibrant and the material is very soft. They do run a little small in the legs. The waist is true to size. They dry very fast and make for a great day on the lake attire.

The Hodad

The North Face Hodad BoardShorts are awesome! The fabric is light and quick-drying. The stretch fabric allows the shorts to be cut less baggy and the inner-leg seam is fused so it will not chafe. The shorts are about one inch to long for me, but that's how boardshorts are cut. I still love them and I wear them a lot outside of the pool. I found that Altrec had the best deal on these Boardshorts. I will buy more.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value

Great Boardshorts
June 17, 2011

Surprised with these shorts - would not have associated TNF with beachwear. Glad I came by the item on accident - great fit and great quality. I have used the shorts twice snorkeling so far and I can tell they're going to hold up to the abuse that I plan to put them through.
