Great boardshorts

Very good quality and fitting boardshorts. I will definitely buy more of them. I do wish they had one or two more pockets.

Best board shorts I've owned.

I live in my boardshorts as well as use them for work. I was looking for a set that was made of recycled materials, stretch features, and bomb-proof. This set checks all boxes and has some amazing features (like the side key loop that i never realized i needed before owning these shorts). High placed cargo pocket is amazing!

My 2 pieces of input for these shorts would be A: more pockets (either hand pockets along with the cargo pocket or 2 cargo pockets) and B: a fabric fly guard (the button fly is nice but it's hard to open so having just fabric would be easier to make peepee's).

Fit: I got the 33's and I usually wear a 34. They fit but are a wee bit snug. Not a criticism on the quality, just a barometer for someone looking for size info.

Quick Dry: these dry really quickly but are a thicker material (I slipped and slid down a granite boulder in these and these came out without a scratch so A+ on the durability) so don't expect them to be 100% in under an hour unless they are in full summer sun.

Dog Pee & Toddler Vomit: I can say, with 1000% first-hand evidence, that these shorts resist both bodily fluids quite well. I don't want to get into the details but you can take my word, they shunt the grunk pretty well and don't hold a grudge (or a stank).

Shark Conservation: I've spent 20 years of my life working on shark conservation and education. I found out after I purchased that $ from these don't go towards shark conservation like other Waterlust products do. While it wouldn't have stopped me from buying these (I ended up buying the tiger and whale shark shorts regardless :D), I like this style the most and wish I could support my passion through these shorts. Again, not a criticism...I didn't pay attention to that detail when I purchased so just making it clear to others.

Over-all rating: 6/5 stars. I'm going to be a lifelong customer.

About the BEST Board shorts!

I can't say enough about these Board Shorts. They are so comfortable, and and fit just right! There is nothing to not like about these! There are lots of awesome little attention to details, and have no problem wearing these going from Board to knocking around town or the home. Thank you for the BEST!

8 Month usage update: The drawstring closure kicks butt!! Like so many things, the devil is in the details, and the drawstrings on the board shorts have the details right. We are live aboard sailors and I have worn these shorts for 4-5 days a week, in the Caribbean sun and saltwater, and they have proven durable and tough, extremely comfortable and easy to use. And I never thought I would describe a board short as easy to use, but after you have tried a drawstring system that works so effectively, you realize how crappy your old shorts were. The middle of the drawstring is stitched down so it never becomes asymmetrical and it has just the right amount of friction so the knots never come undone. And the eyelets which have been doused in saltwater maybe 500 times, are not corroded. Truely a great short and is comfortable and can keep up with your active lifestyle.

My new "Go-to" board shorts. Incredibly comfortable and lightweight. All the minor details that make this a great pair of shorts are there. The button in the "fly" section, key loops, great pocket, and how the laces stay laced...brillant. Fantastic grey/blue color so the board short that can be used for multiple events - on the water or off.
