There are a handful of brands out there leading in boardshorts, and Billabong is on the short list. No surprise since they've got a big and talented surf team creating and putting their trunks through the ringer. The PX1 is on the high end of their line, and it shows. The fabric is very stretchy and comfy, but doesn't feel too delicate either. They've got minimal panels, welded seams, and feel great when you're wearing 'em.
