Gear Review - Patagonia Wavefarer Board Shorts



As timeless as a full-rail bottom turn at 8-foot Sunset, the Wavefarer® Board Shorts are the foundation of our board short collection. Redesigned with a trimmer silhouette through the thigh, seat and leg opening, they're the ultimate go-anywhere, do-anything surf trunks. Made of a light, durable and quick-drying 4.3-oz Supplex® nylon with 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, the Wavefarers feature a natural fit and a 3-piece, self-lined waistband that contours to the hip. The forward inseam helps eliminate chafing in the water, and the flat-lying fly with single rubber button is optimized for comfort while paddling. Closure is a bartacked ladderlock drawstring for security and durability. Self-draining thigh pocket has a noncorroding plastic zipper, internal key loop and added zipper pull for ease of use. 21" outseam.
