Stretch boardies are where surfing is at right now. If you are yet to own a set, it’s like surfing in silk, but the mixture needs to be right on the money. Too loose and you will be hooking knee while too rigid just feels rank, like you have got a cereal box wrapped around your thighs. The new Airlight Stretch series from Billabong nails it perfectly. They feature super light weight mechanical two way stretch, durable satin back weave and have been designed for surfers. They drop in store from February.
