Board Shorts



Australian Designer Men's Board Shorts

Our Men’s board shorts and boys board shorts are great looking, well-fitting and are inspired by Australian summer living. They are available nationwide in David Jones and in the best swimwear and contemporary fashion stores around Australian and around the world.

The Rocks Push board shorts are very different from the traditional men’s board shorts that once ruled our beaches and beyond.

Five years ago, we discovered the plight of Australian men on our beaches, who were stuck in a time warp and still wearing the daggy, baggy, long, overtly branded, kitschy printed men’s board shorts of their youth.

We were sure discerning Australian men wanted to wear something better on our beaches. Chatting to some mates over beers, our hunch was confirmed; Men’s Board Shorts in Australia needed an overhaul.

We started with styles.
  We created four styles: different lengths, different leg fits like jeans, different design features.
  We removed all branding.
  We chose to use only tasteful prints that worked on and off the beach.
  We removed drawstrings from sight on all except the classic swim style, the Balmoral.
  We found the strongest, softest quick drying nylon
  We double stitched them for good measure, and made every pair adjustable with clever details (for the big waves and deck dives)
  We added smart accessories like our waterproof wallet which keeps his kit dry while he gets wet up to 18m.

Designed in Sydney and distinctly Australian, our signature bright prints are inspired by our beautiful Australian beaches, marine life and bush. We work with talented artists from around the world, then print the fabric and make it into a stylish, well-fitting board short, with limited availability in each print.

The Rocks Push collection have reinvented Men’s Board Shorts for both Australian men and boys, giving them a wear-all-weekend short that take them from the first Friday dip until sundowners on Sunday.
