The Men's Light & Variable Board Short is Patagonia's lightest, making it particularly useful for travel as well as the surf.


Our lightest board shorts are made of polyester ripstop with 50-UPF sun protection; 18" outseam. With a new no-inseam construction, the Light and Variables keep you chafe-free while trimming past sections at some empty East Cape point. Our most minimal board shorts, they're a field-tested ambassador favorite - they like the simple design and lightweight fabric, which can handle underwater drag when diving or bodysurfing.

- Rocky Mountain Trail

Our lightest, leanest surf trunks are built for minimal underwater drag when diving and bodysurfing. Made from hardy but ultra-light polyester rip-stop that dries in a heartbeat, the Light and Variable Trunks feature a lace-up, rubber-button fly with our new flat-lying heavy-duty webbing, and they pack down into their own tiny stuff pouch. They have a stealth high-hip pocket. Inseam is 8"; outseam (size 32), 19".


Hit the waves with Patagonia's pared-down, lightweight Light & Variable Surf Trunks. These simple trunks have two zippered pockets and a scaled-back cut that minimizes drag for use when diving or body surfing. When these shorts have been well-used for summer after summer, rest assured, they're fully recyclable.
