In the 1950's, at the mom-and-pop tailor shop of M.Nii located near Makaha Hawaii, some of the earliest hand-made, surf-specific trunks took flight. Their nickname: The "Makaha Downer." Not just another pair of surf-trunks, each pair was considered a memento, a badge of honor, and cherished by locals for their exceptional quality and longevity. With wear and exposure to the elements, the Makaha only became better with time. What you see here is an exact replication of what made M.Nii so coveted among the 1950's pioneers of big wave surfing in Hawaii. No shortcuts, not a detail forgotten,...just plain and simply the best board short we've ever come across!
