Julian Garland hit it right on the head, reference the review below for some next level fit data...I have a few pairs of these and they have been very durable and dont fall off when I get the wind knocked out of me on a wave I couldn't catch!

These are some of my favorite boardshorts from Billabong in the last few seasons. They do come in some fun printed options as well but this is a great way to truly see the tech that goes into these. They are calling this their Airlite Technology and it truly works and is amazing. They use a tighter weave 4-way stretch jacquard on the top section around the waist with the least amount of stretch so it doesn't ever bag out around your waist. The center segment will incorporate significantly more stretch as that is where the most movement is when using in or out of the water. The bottom segment is a micro perferated stretch that was created by weaving a water soluble thread into the fabric, and letting it dissolve during the pre-wash, creating a mini natural perforation for quick dry and water repel. Really amazing boardie that would likely be $100+ from competitors!!
