Let’s just start by saying that Rip Curl are regarded as the one of the best, if not the very best producers of boardshorts for surfers around the world! I tested out the new Mirage 3/2/one Ultimate boardshorts last weekend and was so happily surprised with the result in the surf. The water was warm, the waves were pumping and I had the perfect shorts on. Damn, it felt good. I was able to get fully vertical, pop the fins out and it almost felt like I was naked half the time. The shorts are tight where they need to be, soft and comfy in the areas of need and designed with a new advanced Cordura fabric to make sure the reef doesn’t rip you up. Not to mention the perfectly placed zips for keys and phone.
The obvious goal is to make the surfer as comfortable as possible, and that’s exactly what they do. But with the new designs accommodating such a sweet aesthetic you can wear these shorts just about anywhere and you won’t look like a surfed-out beach bum. They look slick and pretty sexy if you ask me. They dry in a matter of minutes, which means you don’t have to lug around a bunch of spare clothes for your after-surf Nasi Goreng. Say goodbye to all the rashes and welcome incredible comfort to your life. The Mirage’s are truly the ultimate boardshorts! Available in two designs, get your pair for Rp.799,000 IDR at www.ripcurl.asia or at any of their stores on the island and abroad.
