It may still seem too much like winter where you live to be thinking about boardies, but check these things out. The Sprout is made from 55% hemp and 45% polyethylene therephthalate (that’s material made from recycled plastic bottles again). Straight away I dug the earthy material and style, with its embroidery leaf print and all, but I was skeptical about how they’d work in the water. I’m happy to report they are totally comfortable. Though the fabric gathered wax a tad more quickly than most of my regular polyester surf trunks it came out easily in the wash. Bottom line: Thumbs up.
