Portsea Red - Boardies (Mens)


The Portsea Red board short from our Tommy collection is a tribute to the creation of Back Beach Rd, and the first colour to be designed and named in our range. Still as popular today as it was when it was first introduced.

With a unique in-built inner lining designed to prevent chafe, our 2-in-1 multipurpose shorts are suitable for all activities, in and out of the water.

Our high quality craftsmanship, elasticated waistband and drawstring front cord allow for longevity and room for growth (should it be required!).

With their sustainable design and recycled materials, we encourage you to buy better and to buy less.

Not just for blokes, our Tommy boardies are worn by anyone who likes a traditional 'male' cut. Female surfers rock this look!

BBR swimactive wear™ is made for the beach, pool, gym, pilates, yoga, tai chi, meditation, golf, swimming, running, walking, cycling, hiking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, sailing, surfing... the list goes on!

Proud to be Aussie designed and owned.

    • Side pockets
    • Velcro back pocket
    • Small internal back pocket (suitable for a key)
    • Signature Back Beach Rd embroidery logo
