If there is one thing that surfers, stand-up paddlers, kayakers, river rats, and beach bums can all agree on, it's the outstanding comfort and performance of the Patagonia Men's Stretch Wavefarer Board Short. Some may be disappointed by the lack of wild prints or loud colors, but true watermen recognize quality gear when they see―and wear―it.  Lightweight, quick-drying stretch fabric, an updated waistband that says put, a new seat design that enhances mobility, and a highly functional pocket all add up to a must-have piece for your next adventure, water-based or not.

  • Lightweight nylon fabric woven with spandex for mobile stretch
  • Deluge DWR finish slows fabric saturation and helps it dry quickly
  • Updated contoured lined waistband offers a secure fit with its a flat-lying fly with a single rubber button and ladder-lock drawstring closure
  • Forward inseam at crotch eliminates chafing, and straightened side seam aids mobility
  • UPF 40-rated sun protection lets you play in the sand and waves longer
  • Self-draining pocket on right thigh has a non-corrosive, recyclable plastic zipper, internal key loop and added zipper pull

Lovely shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 189 lbs
    Size Purchased: 36

I found these to be excellent build quality, and great to wear and fit. My only reason for 4/5 stars is that there is very little adjustment in the waist. I'm about a 35, and the 36's I got are slightly too big, and the 34's are slightly too small... I wish there was more play in the drawcord.

First pair of Patagonia boardies and I must say these are awesome!!! Great length, fit is perfect and true to size, quick drying, and extremely comfortable with more use. Shipping was stellar as usual w/BAckcountry
