Lightweight, durable and tough enough to take a run-in with the rocks, the men's Patagonia Wavefarer Board Shorts are the ultimate go-anywhere, do-anything surf trunks.
- REI refers to the men's version
From raging rivers to barreling breaks, the Patagonia Men's Wavefarer Board Short delivers iconic style and lightweight performance for surfing, paddling, and water sports. As the mainstay of Patagonia's board short line, the Wavefarer features Supplex nylon for lightweight comfort and durability when you're wearing these trunks in heavy rotation throughout the summer. Its DWR finish sheds moisture for quick drying once you leave the beach for some post-surf snacks. Other cool features include a self-draining zippered pocket for stashing keys and cash, as well as a contoured, three-piece waistband for an ergonomic fit without irritation. Additionally, its UPF 50 rating ensures your backside doesn't burn when you're snorkeling and surfing under the scalding tropical sun.
