Patagonia Men's Hydropeak Boardshorts - 18"

Great For Surfing and the Beach

I have a couple pairs the older Stretch Hydroplaning and Wavefarers in the 21" length. They were a little too big in the waist and long in the legs so I finally these newer ones in a smaller waist and length. The fit is exactly as described. They are a slim fit and fit closer to the thigh but have plenty of give when wet to not bind. They dr... Read Morey quick and I had no chafing issues. My only gripe is the location of the pocket. It should be on the side. Anything in the pocket is just annoying.

The hydro lock board short Is really lite and comfortable short The fabric is super stretchy and flexible But also can be very sensitive Its a light material so its not super durable to rough surfaces

Great shorts

This is my third pair of this specific style of board shorts. Compared to the pair I bought a couple of years ago, these have changed quite a bit. They are shorter on the leg, the back pocket is Velcro instead of zipper, and the overall sizing seems to be off. A 32 from two years ago fits me perfectly, but this time I had to purchase a 33. And with... Read More no free shipping or returns, Id say the shorts become more of an investment than a purchase. Overall, Im happy with them - just a few quirks to navigate.

Light as a feather

These are the most comfortable board shorts I have ever worn. The new 18 in length is perfect, and the stretch fabric gives tremendous movement and freedom.

Like theyre not even there

Super comfortable, lightweight board shorts. Im 6 and they definitely are above the knees. Im pretty slim and they fit me well, but definitely snug while you put them on. Sometimes they do ride up when youre in the water. Otherwise great!

These shorts look great and are extremely light weight. At times I can't tell I'm even wearing anything!

Nice Quality and Good Design

I like the design of the shorts. There's no internal netting if you're into that style. Additionally, there are no front pockets but there is a good sized back pocket that is velcro.

Good choice for surf fishing

Slapped the shorts on and went fishing on the shore at Cape Henlopen State Park. Very comfortable....................

Fits like a golve

These board shorts are great. They fit really well and dry super quick. Lots of freedom of movement as well.

My Favorite Surf Teunk

Patagonia surf trunks are my go to shorts for any watersports. Comfortable, quick drying, stretchy. Im happy that these shorts dont have the split opening on the out seam that the previous year featured.

Free and easy

In the surf, walking the coves and soaking up the sun....I love them. Quick dry and back pocket comes in handy.
