When the little kahuna graduates to the main peak, it's time for a pair of tough and durable Wavefarer(R) Shorts. Just like our men's version, they're built of quick-drying Supplex(R) nylon with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish that sheds moisture. Details on these classic boys' board shorts include a flat-lying single-button fly and an easy-access, self-draining side-zip pocket (with internal key loop). Forward inseam at crotch for chafe-free comfort. Lower rise. Inseam is 10". Fair Trade Certified(TM) sewing.


The Patagonia Boys' WavefArer Board Short is a swim suit he can live in all summer long. The 10" inseam keeps him plenty covered, not just for their comfort level, but it also provides 50+ UPF sun protection from waist to just above the knee. Less Areas for mom to cover with sunscreen. The Supplex nylon fabric dries quickly, so he can go from pool to house to wherever without drenching too much of your best furniture. The self-draining zippered pocket at the side holds onto a couple of bucks for the concessions and has a key loop for his house key. Durable and ready to last the whole summer.
