Vacation ready.

The Women's Wavefarer Board Shorts are a Patagonia classic, ready for surf trips, river floats, and days on the lake. The DWR-treated nylon material dries quickly after a dip in the water, and gusseted construction allows full mobility and comfort while you're sitting on a surfboard or engaging in some morning beach yoga.

So Cute! Runs Small!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

These are great quality. I would say order 2 sizes up vs what you typically wear if you like a fitted but not tight look.

Love these shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

I purchased these to wear on the river and they are awesome. Perfect for the river, great for every day wear as well. They are light, dry quickly, and fit true to size. Additionally, they are just the right length. I am on the lookout for another pair now.

Cute but not the fit I was hoping for

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: xs

I'm 5'2" 110# and got the XS. Shorts are a boxy cut and cut up the rear for me. Fabric has no give even when wet- really wanted to like these but they were uncomfortable when sitting in a kayak all day.

Runs small

  • Size Bought: 12

I really like these, I'm normally a size 6-8. I'm 5'6 149lbs. I got the size 12. They fit perfect.
