Some Water Girl board shorts come with 6-inch inseams, others go the distance with 12 inches. The Water Girl Power Shortage Board Shorts are the only ones you'll find in between. While some short-short enthusiasts might claim that a 9-inch inseam stifles their range of motion, the Water Girl Shortage Board Shorts have a gusseted inseam that gives you a better range of motion than the longer, conventionally-sewn board shorts. In back you'll find a single pocket with a hook-and-loop closure and an internal safety key loop.
