    Love these shorts, only brand I'll buy now. Good for all activities! Use them for swim, board, CrossFit, and even ran a marathon in them. They need to bring back the neon green too!

    Great boardshorts this is my third pair I wear them every day. I live in work in Lake Havasu Arizona and I am a pool guy and pretty much that is my uniform I wear board shorts every day.

    Very good quality. I had some trouble with my order but once I got in touch with them they took care of everything. Great fit. I’m very impressed with the quality. Definitely worth the money.

    Fits perfect and the style is great... I will continue to purchase from Maui Ripper. I use it while I paddle and when I swim
