Product information

Light, durable and tough enough to take a run-in with the reef, the classic Wavefarer Boardshorts are the foundation of Patagonia's boardshort collection. Built as the ultimate go-anywhere, do-anything surf trunks, they’re now made from quick-drying recycled nylon with 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR finish.


Featuring a natural fit with a slightly trimmer silhouette through the thigh, seat and leg, they have a three-piece, self-lined waistband that contours to the hips and a forward inseam to help eliminate chafing. For optimal comfort while paddling, the flat-lying fly secures with a single rubber button and the top closure has a bartacked ladderlock drawstring for security and strength. Additional features include the self-draining hip pocket with a corrosion-proof plastic zipper, internal key loop and added zip pull for ease of use; and the pocket that doubles as a self-storage pouch for beach adventures on the go.

About the brand

Patagonia’s mission: We’re in business to save our home planet.


Patagonia appreciate that all life on earth is under threat of extinction. We aim to use the resources we have—our business, our investments, our voice and our imaginations—to do something about it.


Patagonia grew out of a small company that originally made tools for climbers. Today alpinism remains at the heart of a business that still makes clothes for climbing as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. 


At Patagonia, a love of wild and beautiful places demands participation in the fight to save them, and to help reverse the steep decline in the overall environmental health of our planet we donate our time, services and 1% of our sales to hundreds of grassroots environmental groups all over the world who work to help reverse the tide.
