How to Choose the Right Pair of Boardshorts

Part of being successful at surfing involves choosing the right boardshorts. Here are a few things you should look for when choosing boardshorts that will help you improve your technique, ensure your comfort, and help you look as stylish as possible.

Some boardshorts are intended to be more practical for everyday wear than they are for surfing. These shorts tend to come to between mid-thigh and just above the knee with an elastic waistband. They’re also somewhat looser and not quite as stretchy as other types of boardshorts, making them better choices for swimming, boating, or just hanging out on the beach.

Boardshorts that are ideal for surfing may also have an elastic waistband, but will be made from material that has a great deal of stretch to it. They come to right around the knee, and can be stretched both up and down and sideways without losing their shape. This allows you to be able to make turns and other quick maneuvers with your surfboard without fear of the shorts getting bunched up around your knees and causing you to wipe out.

Some boardshorts are designed with special technology that will help you to prevent rashes and chafes. You may want to consider one of these pair of shorts if you spend lots of time riding the waves, since excessive exposure to salt water and sand can cause these conditions. Also look for quick-dying amphibious walkshorts.  They look like a chino but has the same fabric properties as a boardshort.

Not only do boardshorts have different features and styles, they are also available in a wide assortment of colors and sizes. To see some of the latest styles on the market, check out our selection of boardshorts.
