When Did Boardshorts Start Getting Popular?

They seem kinda retro, so I was curious.

I'm so glad I haven't got my bike stolen.

Have they ever been popular in BMX? I suppose I do sometimes wear them when it is really hot here (30 Celsius+).

Every rider wears boardshorts. Well, during the summer at least.

Around here very, very few people do, and even then only in the hottest days of the summer.

Well in California, they're very popular. Nobody here likes mesh shorts or jean shorts.

Hmmmm...the only kids around here who wear boardshorts are the jocks or prep types that ride longboards to look like a hipster. Same thing with the fixie dudes. Whatever, cargos till I die!

Here, no one wears shorts till the summer, and even then not even half of the riders wear them.

I know this is an old thread but...

I have to start by saying that I have never lived on the coast...

In Dallas, we used to wear that style of shorts in the mid 80's. They were popular among all groups. Back then they were called "Jams". The big brands were Jams and Op and you could only find them in Hawaiian prints. I didn't really notice that style of shorts coming back until MMA started taking off in the early 2000's. But then again, I was never on a coastline to see what people were wearing.
