Baja barrels to North Shore swells.

From the uncrowded beaches of Baja to the powerful waves of Hawaii, the Patagonia Men's Stretch Hydro Planing 21in Board Short brings technical stretch capabilities to your swell-chasing ambitions and lazy beach days. Superlight recycled polyester fabric conforms to your every move in the surf with its two-way mechanical stretch construction. UPF 50+ sun protection ensures safety from UV rays when you're bombarded with sunshine at the beach.

The DWR finish limits water absorption, which means you'll be pleasantly dry in a matter of minutes, instead of dripping all over your vehicle after leaving the beach. The notched outseam maximizes range of motion, with an inseam-free design that eliminates chafing. Additionally, the zippered flap pocket keeps your cash and keys safe when you're playing in the surf.

    a little pricy for some shorts but I would say that it's worth it. I wear mine all the time. They dry fast and are well made. They have a little stretch which is nice.

    Patagonia Stretch Hydro Short

      I bought these for my boyfriend and he loves them. This is his first pair of board shorts from Patagonia, I got them for him for our trip to Hawaii, and he basically wore them everyday. I got the Gray color, they easily look/act as a hybrid short/ board short. He could wear them at the beach all day and then throw on a button up and wear them out to dinner.
