If you’ve got even a passing interest in surfing heritage, you’re going to be stoked for Quiksilver Original Boardshorts‘ SS14 collection. A breakaway faction from the main Quiksilver brand, QOB celebrates Quiksilver’s heritage — they invented the modern board shorts — which means you’ve basically got them to thank for why you’re not floundering around in an old pair of cotton rugby shorts or a speedo every time you hit the waves nowadays. Arriving just in time for summer, QOB presents three cuts — the Yoke, Scallop and Arch — each inspired directly by the originals, which revolutionized modern surf style.

The SS14 collection is available here.
