Get Wet or Sweat

Wetsuits and board shorts can be uncomfortable—especially when you sweat or get wet. Not anymore, thanks to Turq. These smooth-fitting board short liners help prevent chafing and discomfort when you’re on the water or out being active. Wear them underneath your wet suit, swim trunks, or even athletic shorts and they provide a layer of comfort and protection. Turqs are made with hydrophobic microfibers that have been infused with silver to make them anti-microbial (and thus less prone to odor). They’re quick-drying and there are no irritating seams in the front, side, or back—just comfortable briefs, through and through. Form-fitting and supportive, but not compressive, Turqs aren’t limited to the water—you can wear them underneath cycling or gym shorts. Founder Susan White’s two boys said their swim trunks “hurt,” but she couldn’t find any briefs designed to prevent chafing under board shorts or wetsuits. So she created Turqs. Today, athletes ranging from a professional wake boarder to a kitesurfing phenom have endorsed them. So go ahead: Be active, get wet, and stay comfortable with Turq.

    Susan, I just showed my 19-year-old son the photo of Turqs and asked if he would like to have them. He said probably not. Then he watched our video and changed his mind...because they are not compressive. I think you really nailed this product!

    Why just men and boys? Any chance you have a women's version coming? Me and my girls are active athletes involved in water sports and other high perspiration activities and would appreciate a pair tailored to our shape. Otherwise we will give the male version a try.

    @Susan Please...Turqs for women, soon!!! I am a whitewater rafter and sitting in a wet swimsuit for a long time is miserable (21 days when doing the Colorado). This could be the perfect solution for an itchy rear. How far away is "upcoming seasons"?

    Is the antimicrobial silver applied as a finish or is it directly integrated into the fiber? Have you tested the durability of the silver over time?

  • Susan
    Susan – Special Guest
    5/14/2015 1:09 PM

    Hey Chris,

    The silver element is infused into the microfiber as it is created. It is not a treatment that is applied to the fabric. That sort of finish can wash out over time. Our construction maintains it's anti-microbial quality for the life of the product. We lab test all of our production to verify our claims. Thanks for your interest!

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for your message--I think you will love them!

    We make our product in Taiwan. The seamless knitting capacity in the U.S. is very limited, but we are actively looking to partner with domestic suppliers that are willing to work with young companies.

    Hope you enjoy your Turqs!
