The Longest Board Shorts

So who makes the longest board shorts? I’m on a quest to figure this out. I get lots of requests for them mostly from tall guys in the 6’4″ height and taller. There is a serious shortage in stores that carry them. I’ve actually thought about designing a brand for tall people. What do you think of that idea?
It’s also hard to tell who actually has the longest length as sometimes board shorts are measured by the overall outward length, while some are measured by inseam length. It would be helpful if there was a standard measurement – similar to jeans. With board shorts labeled by inseam length and then a measurement telling us the rise as these can vary greatly.
Now that I’ve explained the discrepancies, here are the longest board shorts that I can find around. If you know of any more, leave a comment and I will put them on my list.

  • Cire Boardwear claims to have outward lengths up to 25″ long. Waists are only up to 38″.
