The Inertia

There’s a lot to love about the now wildly-popular athleisure brand Vuori, created in Encinitas to fit the coastal California lifestyle. In fact, we’d like to say that as surfers we were some of the earliest converts to the super-soft materials and flattering fits, thanks to the brand’s longtime collaboration with soul-surfer Rob Machado. Now, it seems like the whole world has caught wind of the awesome comfort and style Vuori brings with each of its products.

Vuori recently announced a new product drop on the surf and beach side of things, the Puerto Boardshort, which was just introduced today, March 31.

Boardshorts have been around for a while, since the 1950s, to be exact. And they’ve evolved a lot since then, from the cropped shorts of the 1960s and ’70s to the baggy boardshort styles of the ’90s and 2000s, to the high-performance boardshorts you’d see in the lineup today. The Puerto Boardshort is taking the timeless boardshort styling of yesteryear, and combining that with the most sustainable and stretchy materials of today for top-tier looks, comfort (for you and the planet), and performance. The Puerto is a true boardshort, with the signature fixed waistband and drawcord tie for surfers and water-people worldwide.

The Puerto Boardshort is made of Vuori’s proprietary VCycled fabric, a quick-drying recycled material, created from 4-5 recycled plastic bottles per piece. It’s Vuori’s most versatile and adventure-ready material that meets all of the Vuori criteria for the insane comfort they’re known for. And that fabric is as high-tech as you’ll find, with four-way stretch that gives a high-performance feel, anti-odor technology for those longer boat trips in more tropical locales, and UPF 30+ as a matter of course. A zippered back pocket with a key loop provides a secure stash-place for whatever you need to take into the water with you.

For now, the Puerto is available in three colorways, Dark Golden, Shale, and Neptune. New customers will get 20% off when they sign up with their email for their first order. See the Puerto Boardshort for yourself on Vuoriclothing.com.


Only the best. We promise.
