The razor-sharp reefs of Java were at the outer limits of surfing in the ’70s, and they still test the most hardened barrel hunters today. Made from superlight, durable and fast-drying and 100% recycled polyester, the Stretch Hydro Planings are the highest-performing board shorts in our line. They feature 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) coating; 2-way mechanical stretch offers maximum flexibility in firing, top-to-bottom surf. A low-drag waistband and slim profile through the thigh and leg provide superior function; the flat-lying gasket fly is optimized for comfort while paddling; a bartacked ladderlock drawstring closure adds long-lasting durability and keeps the shorts secure. The self-draining flap pocket on the right hip has a corrosion-proof plastic zipper with added zipper pull for ease of use; the pocket also doubles as a self-storage pouch. Outseam is 21". Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.

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).

Men's Stretch Hydro Planing Board Shorts - 21" is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Near Perfect Boardshorts Near perfect product from Patagonia. Light stretchy, quick drying, comfy, stylish. Sure they’re pricy, but I wear the heck out of board shorts and no surf brand will warranty and stand behind their product like Patagonia. I love the 21” length, and these have a far better slimmer cut through the thigh than Wavefarer boardies. I’ve returned 21” Wavefarers because the flapped like a flag in the wind with unnecessary excess material. If you’re actually going to surf and not just wear boardshorts at the pool or beach, these are the shorts you’ll want. I’m 5’7” 152 lbs and usually wear a 31”, but almost always need 32” in Patagonia board shorts FYI. Patagonia please offer more colors and prints in there shorts!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A pair of casual actiq board short I'm a white water Guide in kern valley,CA and I bought of pair of these board short because I lost my old ones. They are kind of floppy thin material Not so durable but it dries quick and very stretchy not great on theq river but they would be a great pair for the ocean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new Gold Standard! I surf in these- a lot. I went a few years in the old 4-way stretch board shorts; liked the fit but they were a bit heavy (only really noticed it recently). I lost a bunch of weight and got into some of these...wow! I like the buttonless fly, and the drawstrings have a soft end- very comfortable while paddling. They fit tighter around the legs, overall less material / drag, as stated in the video link. The material is not as stretchy as the 4-way, but they are significantly lighter and dry in minutes. I can see the water beading off when I get out of the water. I like the seamless inner-thigh, no reason to ever get board shorts with an inner seam again! These are the new standard, and I've tried a lot of board shorts! After a week of surfing in these, I immediately ordered my second pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butter on my thighs Seriously, these are the best things I've put on my body. Perfect fit around waist and with a slightly larger thigh than typical board shorts, these bad boys fit awesome. Stretchy and super durable. Definitely shorts I've worn time and time again with no wash and put through surfing, beach days and surf fishing. So good!
