  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I love these, and most DC board shorts I've come across. The fit is very true to size and perfect for me. I'm a pretty consistent 34 waist. 6' and 190 lbs. The 34 fits me perfect, and the 22" outseam has these going down right to the middle of my knee cap. Perfect length to not look like short-shorts, but not get in the way during activities.

Overall quality is great. Not the super fancy materials you find in the super high end $100+ board shorts these days, but for the price the material is comfortable and durable so I'm happy. I tried on tons of board shorts and landed on these. The fit is different for everyone so you may need to try a few as well, but these are definitely worth a look.

I'm 6ft with a 32in waist and find the boardshorts are too short. Can you recommend ones that are longer? Thank you

Hi Stacey, take notice of the outseam measurement in the tech specs. I'm your height and waist size and 22 inch boardies hit me at the bottom of the knee cap. 22 inches is the longest we sell and the longest boardie any of our brands offer. So unfortunately you won't find boardies longer than 22 inches on this site. Sorry about that.

Do these pair of shorts fit like ripcurl does. I am a bigger guy and wear a size 40 in shorts. I am 6'4 so always have trouble finding boardshorts that fit long enough. Will these go down to my knees?? Also should I order a size 40??

Are there any slim fit board shorts? I am like 5'4 and every pair I buy is either too long, or too baggy. Hard to find a slim fit (not skinny) pair of board shorts...other than cutting a pair of volcom pants. Any help would be great!

Hey Michael,

I'm confused if you are more worried about length or bagginess, they are two different things. I will include some links to some tailored (slim) fitting board shorts but if length is your concern just check the specs...most of our board shorts outseam is listed, 22" is standard.
