Don't Over Think the Colors

Love these board shorts, but you guys need to have a core set of colors that you offer year in and year out ( and not variations on a color i.e Guard Red - that should be a standard offering). It's very frustrating when you're looking to replace your shorts and all the colors have changed and frankly it seems each year get less and less a... Read Moreppealing. (BTW the standard offering applies to solid colors only. Think about it.... it will make everyones life much easier and less stressful....

Comfortable/fast drying

I live in PA and we usually have a wide range of climates yearly.I have a few different pieces of clothing from patagonia for different purposes and weather conditions e.g ( dirt roamer jacket for mtb, better sweater for hiking in cold etc.In all honesty I only surfed in them once , but i lived in them for a week ,which included surf fishing daily ... Read Moreand swimming everyday. The quality is absolutely what I expected. I couldnt believe how actually quick drying they were and fit was perfect. I wouldnt say the fit was slim but maybe athletic. Also im big on pocket functionality. I have an Iphone11 w an otter box and in water I have a waterwallet containing my id and credit card. Zipped up w ease. Obviously youre not gonna need your phone in the water but wearing them on the beach, boardwalk or in a kayak it should fit fine. Also the waistband ties up nice and strong. Listen I just want to give an honest review of a great product, this checks all the boxes. So hurry up summer is almost over here on the east coast grab a pair and live the life you love.

Bitchin beach britches

Top Quality Boardshort, just enough stretch to keep loose when surfing and quick drying when back on the shore. Perfecto!

Comfortable, quick drying fabric

I own multiple Patagonia board shorts and swimming trunks, but these, by far, are the most comfortable.

Perfect boardshorts - high quality and good fit

The board shorts are great

The board shorts are great very comfortable good length not to short or long.the one problem I have is that the waist size for me is a little wonky. in walk shorts I wear a size 32 but the board shorts is a size 33 ? other than that they are great.

Best boardshorts I own

My waist is 82 cm, the 32 fits perfectly. So glad I got these.

Great board short

These have everything you would want in board shorts. Much better fit than the scallop short.

runs small

These run small and the fit is tight overall, and actually restrictive in the thighs. For size 31" waist the drawstring might allow for that with stretch, but they would seem to fit correctly at 30", roughly 1" smaller than advertised in the waist. I'll need to try a larger size to see if it can be comfortable.

Thank you for writing this review Neil! We are truly sorry to hear about the fit and sizing issues you encountered with these boardshorts. If you find that the larger size does not work out, we would recommend checking out our [Men's Wavefarer Boardshorts]( as they offer a slightly larger thigh fit.

Good overall board shorts

I live in hawaii and paddle outrigger canoes almost daily, either OC1 or OC6, works well and fits well in water. Good for surfing and swimming as well. General at home Im just in board shorts all day and night and these fit well and have good breathability and keep me cool on hot days.

Patagonia Men's Hydropeak Board Shorts review

The fit and finish are excellent. I really enjoy wearing these board shorts...

Epic with the side pockets

These are a home-run. I would not buy them before because they only had butt pockets which are useless for anyone actually surfing. Cannot put wax or keys in them when surfing and cant put a phone in the pocket when you are. With a side pocket these might be Patagonia's best board shorts for surfing. thin and quick drying, but tough. Thanks fo... Read Morer the Side Pockets!

They look and fit great

They look and fit great ,thier lighter than Air.

Live in them

I just got these and immediately took them on a 6-day camping trip in Baja. Surfed, swam, ate, and even slept in them. They dry quickly and you hardly even notice you're wearing them, which is always the best sign of good trunks.

Trim and comfy

These are the best surf trunks from Patagonia this year. Want something with clean lines that dries quickly, and is somewhere in the Goldilocks fitnot too big or long, not too 80s trim? This is it. Super comfortable for all-day wearIm regularly in and out and drying out.

Pocket doubles as storage pouch

I love these! The pocket doubles as storage pouch, which is nice for traveling. Stretchy, feel and look great!
