Boardshort Bottle Opener Debuts

Men who enjoy drinking bottled beer in the great watery outdoors are in luck. BBO—the Boardshort Bottle Opener—is here! Developed by founder and inventor Ale Allouche, this patent-pending product is sure to be a hit as well as an entertaining topic of conversation. Veteran surfer Allouche has been designing quality surfing apparel for more than 20 years.

Allouche came up with the idea for the BBO short after returning from a day of surfing with friends. With beverages waiting for them on the beach and no way of opening them, they all improvised, leading to a chipped tooth and a bloody thumb. The wheels started spinning on the ride home, and after many samples and revisions, the BBO shorts were born.

The boardshort collection features superior craftsmanship with a silicone drawcord at the front waist, performance mesh inside waistband, soft yet durable four-way and two-way stretch fabrics, flatlock stretch stitching and the patent-pending beer bottle opener, which will not tarnish in the water.

Styles include the multi-striped “Stats” in four color ways, “Pina” and “Mano” print with solid combos, “Jardin” print and stripe combo, “Reel” fish print and “Combat” solid walking short, in sizes 30 to 42. The Mano and Reel styles have an added feature of a plier pocket for fishing enthusiasts. For more information, visit
