The Slightly Choppy will be available this summer for $59.50 at Quiksilver retail stores nationwide and online at quiksilver.com, with a portion of the proceeds from each sale benefiting the Surfrider Foundation.
“Quiksilver and the Surfrider Foundation have had a close, long standing relationship for many years, and we feel privileged to further support their organization in a creative and unique way with the Slightly Choppy boardshort,” says Eddie Anaya, Director of Quiksilver Marketing.
The Slightly Choppy boardshort features original artwork donated by Quiksilver’s renowned designer Scott Richards and includes the Surfrider Foundation’s iconic wave logo throughout the patchwork design, which is printed onto 100% eco-friendly organic cotton.
