I’m Obsessed With Salt Life’s Palm Perfection Boardshorts

Fellas, summer is upon us. That means beach days and boat adventures. Nothing quite like ’em.

Living in Southern California, I’ve learned that you need a solid rotation of boardshorts for a proper beach outfit. One pair just isn’t enough for 50+ beach days, from May to October.

You need something comfortable and stylish, with a ‘fit that hits above the knee. It needs to dry quickly and look timeless in the sun. You need board shorts that feel great in the water or on a surfboard and aren’t going to chafe you when you go for a stroll.

Salt Life Boardshorts Review

Salt Life’s Palm Perfection boardshorts check all the boxes. Best of all, unlike other expensive designer swimwear, they’re modestly priced under $60 on SaltLife.com.

They’re made from performance SLX UVapor stretch fabric – a one-of-a-kind boardshort fabric that’s quick-drying, ultra-light, and extremely comfortable. There’s also a liner like a pair of swim trunks, which I’m a big fan of.

The Palm Perfection boardshorts are perfect for all-day beach hangs. The look is timeless, hitting properly on the thigh like a pair of swimming trunks rather than sagging below the knee.

Bottom line: A great pair of boardshorts for all-day comfort, at a great price ($56) via SaltLife.com. Truly an unbeatable value if you’re looking to step up your swimwear game this summer.
