    I Love the Octo Tako Board Shorts; You will Too!!!

    Posted by Christian Angstadt on 8th Jul 2019

    Maui Rippers hit a home run with the Octo Tako board shorts; they are the best you can buy. I bought the Octo Tako in other colors too, but I just bought my second pair of the classic black color to tuck away for the future. I can't say enough about the quality and look of these shorts. I also pre-ordered the 24" Core boards (waiting for them to be released and shipped); I am sure I will love them too, but it will be hard to beat the Octo Tako's!

    Modern Day Loincloth - My #1 Shorts

    Posted by aaron on 2nd May 2014

    But that's because I only have four pairs of shorts. 3 of them are Maui Rippers, and the 4th gets no wear no more. So these are my number 1s because of Mr Tako on the side. My second favorite are the 2012 version of the Blue Tribal design...with 2 pockets. I am a dive instructor in the Philippines so these are perfect for my living conditions. I have had both of these for a year and wear them swimming, running, drinking, eating, diving, lounging, and to the gym. They are easy to wash, here's how: rub some soap onto the shorts (optional), put them on, grab your swim goggles, go for a 30 minute swim in the ocean, relax and have a San Miguel....depending on the humidity, they will easily dry within the hour. The colors hold strong, embroidered design fully intact. While scuba diving I use a carabiner and the key string in pocket to leash my GoPro. If you are not wearing them running or to the gym, commando is an option. What I don't care for is the lack of stretch in the fabric, something nice to have for those leg workouts at the gym. I think the Ripper stretch may be the perfect answer to that dilemma.
