Boardshorts for the water, waves and beach


As soon as the water is warm enough, surfers swap their wetsuits for boardshorts. The comfortable boardshorts are available in all kinds of colours, cuts and materials. Shorts for surfers must provide a good fit, excellent freedom of movement, quick drying properties and more durability than regular bathing shorts.

Some boardshorts are specially designed for movement-intensive activities like surfing, thanks to elastic materials. A comfortable waistband with an elastic or lacing provides a secure hold and perfect fit. Strong seams and high-quality materials ensure high durability, even with intensive use. Some companies, like Patagonia, also offer integrated UV protection in their surf shorts, or DWR treatment, which causes water and dirt to simply roll off. Many boardshorts feature pockets that are in turn equipped with attachment eyelets, keyring clips or other nifty solutions.

Boardshorts for men, women and kids

Shorts for surfers are available in a wide variety of cuts and lengths. From wide, below-the-knee outdoor shorts that can be worn in water, to ultra-short surf shorts for women that are not much longer than bikini bottoms.

The options to mix and match boardshorts, surfwear and swimwear are simply endless. Many surfers also wear regular swim briefs under their shorts. Some shorts come with inner shorts made of mesh fabric already integrated. Female surfers love to combine boardshorts with bikini tops. Whether it's with shorts from adidas or Reima - together with the right bikini, the perfect fit in the water and waves is guaranteed, and they make a stylish choice as a summer holiday outfit at the beach too.
