You've just stumbled upon the original Bertha Board Shorts, in light grey. An all-time best-seller, these can play in the sand all day. Their 4-way stretch fabric has been known to cause extreme comfort and the Bertha print has been known to steal faces at beaches from coast to coast. You are sure to get compliments wherever you go! 

  • - 4-way stretch fabric
  • - Velcro Closure & Lace-up Waist
  • - Two Side Pockets
  • - Zippered Back Pocket w/ Elastic Key Band
  • - Mesh Liner is sewn into the legs of the shorts (not an underwear liner)

Our liner helps form the fit and hold proper shape by coating the inside of the board shorts. This will keep them from sticking to you when you get out of the water! The liner prevents chafing, helps them to dry more quickly, and helps avoid any awkward see-through suit incidents!

Officially licensed Grateful Dead merchandise and exclusively designed by Section 119.

    Love the Bertha!

    Long enough for casual wear, velcro and draw string for extra security.

    Ordered up one size for future expansion!

    Erik was the best customer service rep I've ever worked with for any company, any product!

    I ordered a few items and loved them all. However, the Dancing Bears short sleeve shirt arrived in size XL and it was tiny. So, Erik allowed me to return it to get a 2XL... which arrived and was also tiny. (I'm not an overly big guy) SO, Erik again worked with me and got me a 3XL to make sure I was happy. He went above and beyond to make sure that I was a happy little Dead Head... which I am now! Thanks Erik and I will be buying more Dead gear from Sec 119 in the future. Have a Grateful Day!!!
