Ok guys, so you are going to be lifeguarding this summer at your local swimming pool or beach? Then you need to make sure you have the proper uniform. Yes we know you don’t really care about the uniform but you do want to look good so you can land a date with your fellow female lifeguard or that cute girl in a bikini that shows up when you are lifeguarding everyday. Well you have several options to choose from and hopefully we can help you make a good decision. The classic style trunks are still around, but they’ve taken a back seat to modern board short styles. Lifeguards, just like surfers, realize board shorts offer a lot of freedom of movement. Choices include long or short leg lengths. Many of the lifeguarding shorts are a cross between the classic style of swim trunks and the boardshorts. These new boardshort styles offer a slightly shorter leg, a drawstring, and quicker drying fabric all of which makes for a more comfortable short to wear while you are up in the lifeguarding chair.
