We make all our surf trunks chafe-proof, with a forward inseam at the crotch, so they perform just as well in the lineup as on the hike to that distant cove. Our tried-and-true Wavefarers have a contoured waistband, hit just below the knee to prevent wax rash and are built from a tough but lightweight, quick-drying 4.3-oz 100% nylon with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Details include a flat-lying single-button fly, an easy-access, self-draining side zip pocket with key loop. Inseam is 10"; outseam (size 32) is 21".

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
