why we made this
These lined 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). Surf's up!

Decent but not the greatest.
I bought these shorts from a lululemon store in Toronto. I bought these shorts excited about the liner inside. Well that has been the worst enemy of these shorts. The liner isn't of a durable enough quality to last through many uses of what these shorts are supposed to be used for, water. When the shorts are wet good luck if you need to go to the bathroom anytime soon because you will likely put a major strain on the fabric trying to get the pants off. I have heard multiple tears through putting these shorts on and off whether it be they are wet or dry. The liner is the major issue, just not of the best quality.
I like all other aspects of these shorts but sadly for $88.00 bucks they just aren't worth it when the shorts just don't provide what they promise.
We know lululemon has had quality issues before, but i thought the company was working on fixing that. As a shopper and a shareholder I am not convinced we are getting as good quality product as some are led to believe.
Will I still shop at lulu yes, but would I recommend these shorts... NO! If they were $50.00 I would say grab a pair and give them a shot. But for $88.00 you can do so much better, possibly the unlined version?

Retro fit-Futuristic Function
This bad boys cooler than an Eskimo Kiss!
The 9" short gives you a look ready for a 'Endless Summer' of surf, and the Liner (There is one, similar to the Pace Breaker) will keep the chafe away!
I wrote about the El Current II, and didn't think you'd be able to top it, but it seems like my favorite Boardies just went from good to GREAT!
