Basketball shorts usually go to or past your knees and soccer shorts usually go to your mid-thighs - yes, I agree

Boarding shorts is a term used for knee length Surfing shorts, while basketball shorts are knee length basketball shorts. The only real difference is the colors on the shorts. The more colors on the shorts, the more likely you are wearing boardshorts.
