About Avalon


Based out of Southern California, Avalon is a designer of premium men’s retro boardshorts

Avalon was created from the frustration of not being able to find good quality, basic, slim-fitting and short boardshorts. This underserved market presented an opportunity, one which we decided to capitalize on since inception in 2014.

As a designer, Avalon’s primary focus is on style and fit – delivering high-quality, expertly tailored, form fitting garments that will keep our customers looking their best.

Our inspiration comes from California’s retro surf culture – at a time when boardshorts would sit well above the knee and have a slimmer fit.  Our line of retro inspired boardshorts is handmade and combines the retro style and fit with new age materials to ensure for longevity and sustainability.
