Standard / Quiksilver Kwok Rock Black and Red Boardshorts

In celebration of the bold attitudes and bright colors of the boardshort’s golden era, The Standard has again (check out deets about the original collection here!) partnered up with Quiksilver to reissue a limited edition series of original boardshorts from the 70s and 80s but with modern fits, fabrics and technology.

KWOK ROCK features black shorts, with red and black checkers, inspired by The Standard Downtown LA's urban, geometric 80s vibe.


Diamond Dobby Material: The ultimate in in-water performance. No rash. Perfect stretch. Ultra light-weight. Quick dry. Perfect for surfing, sleeping, lounging, getting huge at the gym, hiking, biking… pretty much anything.

16" Length: Back in the ’70s, boardshorts came down to the mid-thigh. In the '90s, they dropped below the knee. As an homage to the golden era of boardshorts we brought this style back to the 70s for you.

Two Button Closure: True to the originals, these shorts feature snaps instead of drawstrings. One says The Standard, one has the Quiksilver mountain and wave logo.

Subtly Standard: It’s not about the brands, it’s about the boardshorts. We included some very subtle branding; there’s a tonal Standard logo embroidered on the rear waistband and an upside-down Quiksilver patch on the front.

Packable Pouch: Comes packages in a specially designed  waterproof travel bag. Get out of the pool, bag up your boardies and throw them in your suitcase.

Sizing: These boardies run true to size
