    This is an issue I've struggled to resolve also. I was wearing Nautica for a while and also tried some of the beer-inspired trunks. Corona made some really nice stuff a few years back. Recently I've spurned the trunks to bring a more natural feeling to my freesurfs. I've been charging in my jock strap from little league with the cup in. Sure, you'll pick up a few pressure dents from all that cup on deck action but i feel more liberated in the water and get that extra protection that boardies lack. It also makes me feel like I'm on Jackass, which is pretty boss, especially going left at crowded beachies. ( I'm a goofy-footer) Eastend, put the free back in your free surfs and don the j-strap.

    The oakley blade 2 are nice and the oneil epicfreaks. Oakleys have a compression short piece inside and the regular board short on the outside.

    I like the quicksilver diamond dobby. Theyre fast drying and just enough strectch. There is such a thing as to much stretch. I had a pair of rvcas and they were to stretchy.

    i have some diamond dobbys. i like them but they aren't very durable. ripped the back pocket within the first week. i also have a pair of nike 6.0's that are really nice but my favorite pair are my original hurley phantoms. great price and ultimate comfort. never got a rash in 3 years with them. plus you can't beat the price. 39.95

    Am I the only one who wears trunks on the regular? I have a massive collection of
    roughly 30 trunks from techs to the classics. I'd recommend Rip Curl Mirages, Billabong Platinums, or the RVCA Blockers. I have trunks from practically every surf company, and while you really can't go wrong with a tech, some guys do it better.
