Head to the beach or hit the pool in a pair of boardies that take their style cues from the ocean.

There’s always a good excuse to pick up a new pair of boardshorts. Adding to the mix is this collection of fun designs that take their inspiration from the ocean.

The Leaping Dolphins Boardshort by Captain Fin has a bright orange base color, that gets the addition of dancing dolphins and sailboats. Or try a reverse colorway, brought to you by Ambsn, with a navy base, and a more cartooned version of sea life including friendly sharks.

Billabong’s approach to an homage to the sea is outside of the water. In a collaboration with the foundation of Andy Warhol, the Sunset Lo Tides shorts come from a film the artist made in 1968 called San Diego Surf.

RVCA, Reef, Boardies and Barney Cools  all take their own unique approach to boardies with an aquatic feel. Get a pair, and get ready to jump into the nearest body of water.
