From their workshop in the historic Old Port of Portland, Maine, Sea Bags hand selects key materials in the boardshorts from authentic vintage sails. Sailcloth with original markings and signs of hard sailing, grommets that tie the rigging and tell-tails, which indicate wind direction, ensure that no two trunks are alike.

Sea Bags boardshorts blend sailcloth from Sea Bags' sailing archive with lightweight, quick-dry nylon – the standard for the world's best surf trunks. The hand picked Dacron sailcloth features classic nautical colors and vintage markings.

The thoughtful detail on the Velcro, lace-up fly provides a low-profile enclosure which helps eliminate surfboard chafe. And in a truly unique nautical twist, Sea Bags board shorts featuring sailing “tell-tails” on the side pocket of every pair.

Sea Bags board shorts are available in two styles: Scuttlebutt (17 inch length), and Cat Head (19 inch length). Sizes range from 30- to 40-inch waists. And available colors include red, blue, black or green (MSRP $98).
