Light, durable and tough enough to take a run-in with the reef, the Wavefarer® Board Shorts are the foundation of our board short collection. Now with a slightly trimmer silhouette through the thigh, seat and leg, they’re the ultimate go-anywhere, do-anything surf trunks. Made of a quick-drying 3.9-oz Supplex® nylon (38% recycled) with 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, they feature a natural fit and 3-piece, self-lined waistband that contours to the hip. The forward inseam helps eliminate chafing in the water, 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. Outseam is 21".

UPF Fabric

Lacking fur, feathers or scales, we humans have to think up clever ways to protect ourselves from the sun. Products with the UPF designation provide built-in sun protection that won’t wear off.

To achieve sun protection, Patagonia takes a varied approach, depending on the degree of protection desired and the fabric used. Elements of the strategy can range from yarn selection to fabric construction to the use of special finishes (especially for light colors which generally provide less protection).

Recycled Polyester

In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.

Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.

Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.

Men's Wavefarer Board Shorts - 21 In. is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Board Shorts Very comfortable! Thought I should have purchased the stretch wavefarer, but these have plenty of room and keep their shape. This is my second pair. I love patagonia board shorts, I have some older than some of the guys I surf with!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable! I bought these shorts for a Caribbean cruise (aka escape the snow) last month and couldn't be happier with the fit and quality. Add Patagonia's environmental stewardship initiatives and you have brand loyalty! Keep up the great work Patagonia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only suit you need. I love these shorts. They are true to size, lightweight and dry quickly. Very simple design with one pocket that has a little leash to secure a key. The lace closure allows for minor adjustment and the fly has one button to keep your bits inside but allows the shorts to be easily removed when wet. The length is perfect for me. They come down my thighs about 2/3 of the way to my knees. I wear these as shorts on hot days when I don't need to carry anything. They are durable and look great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite boardies After about two decades of wearing super colorful and baggy board shorts, I one day realized that I'm 35 and it might be time to grow up a bit. The WaveFarer is the answer I was looking for. I nice one color board short that carries my keys and my wallet/cellphone and a touch of color in the waist tie thingy and a little extra pop on the Patagonia logo. These boardies are perfect. Simple, light, and functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great swim trunks and everyday shorts I just bought these and am very pleased with my purchase. The stretch in these shorts makes them super comfortable and able to be worn as an everyday short. The zipper pocket easily stores a phone or small item, the mesh on the bottom of the pocket is a added benefit, and I went swimming with them last night and they dried very quickly. The drawstrings on the front tie and untie very easily, and cinch up the front perfectly. I'm not sure why I cannot seem to find bathing suits that I like, but for the short time that I've owned these, I am very happy with them: they are just what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of room for your boys Nothing underneath, run 3 miles to the beach with them tied loose, then tie them tight for swimming. Awesome would never use another pair of board shorts. The size on the tag is accurate. Tried the stretch ones too but the fabric is too soft and reveals a graphic silhouette.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them for prone paddling These shorts are the best. They have a substantial weight, dry quickly, are so comfortable you forget you have them on, and fit perfectly. I wear a 33 pant and the 33 Wavefarers fit like they were made for me. I put my car keys enclosed in a couple of ziplocks, put them in the zippered pocket and forget them. Some board shorts are cartoonishly long -- at least IMO. These fit just right, just above the knee. I have two pair. Love them.
