woven for strength and no-bulk performance, this four-way stretch fabric moves with us and stays out of our way
why we made this
These unlined shorts are sweat and surf ready. The lightweight fabric holds its shape, they dry quickly between swells and the chafe-resistant bonded seams help to keep you comfortable (even when things get rough).

Great but material fading
Bought this swimsuit two weeks ago. It's been worn twice to the lake. The fit and finish is excellent. Very comfortable, BUT the black fabric is faded in spots after being washed twice and hung out to dry.

These shorts are built to last. No seams to come undone. No frills and everything is light and stretchy. I actually am using these shorts for crossfit and not surfing or swimming. My only complaint is that the waistband does not breathe really at all so it gets a little hot. Other than that I love the shorts.

Best Board Short Yet
So happy. The bonded seams create a perfect fit. Couldn't be happier.

One of the best board shorts I have worn!
I have tried them all" O'Neill, Billabong, Quicksilver, Patagonia, Hurley.
Hurley's are still my favorite, great material, designs, but Lulu's El Current short II is right there with it.
Super lightweight, comfortable, no chaffing, fast drying, great in the ocean or on the run on the beach. I even slept in those, since they are so comfortable.

Surfing just got better
Sometimes two things you love come together and it doesn't work, like pizza and a Jacuzzi. On the other hand sometimes it does, the El Current II is the best for any surfing/Lulu enthusiast.
What do i love about this short, EVERYTHING!

A little too revealing
I love the material and the light weight of these swim shorts, but there is just one thing that got in the way of me keeping them. While they are not actually tight, the material is so thin that it still shows a lot of package in the front. It would be pretty embarrassing to wear in public. Going up a size reduced the problem, but did not eliminate it.
They are extremely comfortable and stretchy, and so it was very hard for me to accept that I had to give them back to Lululemon. Hopefully Lululemon will remake these with a thicker material so that they don't show so much up front.
This review is regarding the black shorts, but all three colors seemed to be the same material.
