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.
