Hang ten! Hurley unveils 2014 Phantom National Team boardshorts

Just in time for this summer’s extravaganza in Brazil, Hurley unveiled their highly anticipated 2014 Phantom National Team boardshorts. And we must admit, they’re spectacular.

In conjunction with their “Fly the Flag” campaign, the ultra lightweight Phantom collection are aligned with the Brazil, France and United States’ national team kits which Nike released earlier this year. The colorways are so similar that you have to seem them for yourself.

And the fun doesn’t stop there. Aside from their hip design, the Phantom boardshorts are made from an average 12 recycled plastic water bottles, demonstrating Hurley’s support for environmental protection. To date, more than 50 million plastic water bottles repurposed into Hurley’s signature boardshorts.

“We try to bring innovation and inspiration to every athlete in the world,” said Hurley Creative Director Ryan Hurley in a released statement. “Connecting the competitive passion for sport and country, through Phantom Innovation, is what this project is all about. I feel very fortunate to be a small part of such an inspirational moment for the world’s best.

Starting on May 1, you can go straight from the beach to the stadium in these beauties.
