Enjoy a quick swim or all-day SUP session with the classic Patagonia Wavefarer board shorts. They're built light, durable and tough enough to take a run-in with the reef.


Light, durable and tough enough to take a run-in with the reef, the Patagonia Wavefarer Board Shorts are the foundation of our board short collection. Available in Mid and Regular Length options in a range of solids and prints, they're the ultimate go-anywhere, do-anything surf trunks. Made of quick-drying nylon (38% recycled) with 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, they have a natural fit with a slightly trimmer silhouette through the thigh, seat and leg; the 3-piece, self-lined waistband contours to the hip. A forward inseam helps eliminate chafing, and the flat-lying fly with single rubber button is optimized for comfort while paddling. Closure is a bartacked ladderlock drawstring for security and durability. Self-draining thigh pocket has a noncorroding plastic zipper, internal key loop and added zipper pull for ease of use. Fabric is bluesign approved. Outseams: Mid Length, 19 Inch.
