Here's what other sites are saying:

The longest boardies we make. With a 23" outseam, our Wavefarer Board Shorts will keep you covered but they don't catch on your knees when you pop up. To prevent wax rash and rail rub, the Twenty-Threes are made from smooth, quick-drying, DWR-treated 100% nylon, with a forward inseam that won't chafe. They feature our flat-lying, heavy-duty webbing in the lace-up, rubber-button fly. An easy-access, self-draining side zip pocket with a corrosion-proof plastic zipper pull and key loop keeps your stash intact. Inseam is 12"; outseam (size 32), 23".


Patagonia dialed up the extra length for its Twenty-Threes Wavefarer Board Shorts. Like Patagonias other Wavefarer board shorts, the Twenty Threes come with durable, water-resistant fabric that dries quickly when wet. But these bad boys come with a 23-inch inseam (size 32) that gives you extra coverage in the legs and that classic, laid-back look. The three-piece waistband wont dig into your hips during your afternoon volleyball game, and the horizontal, self-draining side pocket with internal key loop stores your daily essentials while you live the good life.


An enduring workhorse, the Patagonia Men's Twenty-Three's Boardshorts tackles the surf line-up unbunched, dries quickly when you hit the beach, and is stylin' from dawn to dusk. Featuring a snap fly and flat tie closure, these nylon shorts stay secure through a hyper-active session. Performance details include a forward inseam at the crotch to eliminate chafing, self-lined waistband that contours to the hip line, horizontal self-draining, and side-seam zip pocket with a secure zip and internal key loop. Adding 2 more inches to the classic below the knee Wavefarer hem, these Patagonia Board Shorts are recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program.
