Your Guide to the Best Surfing Attire for Men

If you're a surfer, you know that it's more than just a sport—it's a lifestyle. And with any lifestyle, having the proper clothing is critical. That's why we've compiled a list of the best surfing attire for men. If you're a lifelong fan of classic surfwear from brands like Hurley, you will feel right at home.

1. Board Shorts

Board shorts are the most iconic piece of surfer style. Not only are they comfortable to wear, but they also allow for flexibility and movement when riding the waves. Vintage 1946's board shorts are made with the surfer in mind, featuring durable materials and a comfortable fit.

2. Sandals

When it comes to footwear for the beach, sandals are a must-have. Not only are they easy to slip on and off, but they also allow for breathability and airflow. Good beach sandals are typically made with a high-quality footbed and superior cushioning. This gives you better arch support and relaxation.

The goal is to find a sandal that's not just sexy and stylish but also comfortable enough to wear all day. It's no secret to surfers that the sands can be rough and unforgiving—but with the perfect sandals, you won't have to worry.

3. Tees

Graphic tees are a staple of the surfer style, and Hurley and other brands are sure to have many options.

Whether you're into sunset scenes or waves, these tees offer a range of cool designs. Pick a light-colored shirt to keep the relaxed vibe going, or choose a darker tee if you're prone to spills. Not a fan of graphics? Not a problem! With a Vintage 1946 Crew Neck, you can look clean and hip without loud graphics.

4. Lightweight Sweaters and Flannels

As the sun sets and the ocean breeze picks up, it's always a good idea to have a light sweater or flannel on hand. Not only will it keep you warm, but it'll also add some style to your beach look. Lightweight sweaters and flannels are perfect for those cool beach nights. Our Vintage 1946 Fleece Lined Heathered Rib Shirt Jacket fits the bill, too.

5. Sunglasses

Protecting your eyes from the sun is essential when spending time on the beach. Not only do sunglasses protect your eyes, but they also add some style to your beach look. From Hurley to Oakley, you should have no trouble finding a unique style of shades that go well with your Vintage 1946 surfwear. But remember that you don't have to break the bank to have great-looking sunglasses. There are plenty of affordable options out there from both these brands.

6. Bracelets and Necklaces

Accessorizing with bracelets and necklaces is a great way to add personality to your beach look. You can find surfer-inspired bracelets and necklaces made with quality materials and offer a range of designs to choose from.

7. Wetsuits and Rash Guards

For those colder water days or extra protection from the sun, wetsuits and rash guards are a must-have. Anybody who's anybody in the surfer world either owns or knows someone who owns a Hurley wetsuit. They're made with durable materials and offer a comfortable fit for all-day wear. Vintage 1946's surfing attire complements the classic Hurley brand, as both offer excellent quality surf wear at a value-driven price.

8. Hats

Protecting your head and face from the sun is essential when spending time on the beach. If you're rocking Vintage 1946 surfwear, you can trust that it will perfectly match the endless supply of hat offerings on the market. Surf-inspired hats offer a range of styles, including baseball caps and bucket hats. Pick your favorite to accommodate your vintage style. Hats are a great way to add something extra to your beach look.
