Perfect length and fit for swimming, surfing, paddle boarding, running and yoga. Excellent material comfort , quality and durability. Perfect fit for the beach or yoga studio. I have many pairs of the original Wavefarer boardshorts and all have lasted many seasons. The stretch version is just as durable and much more comfortable. I highly recommend...

Well designed and fits true to size
I have a pair of Stretch Wavefarer 21" boardshorts that I've owned for years and that I love. However, I was looking for a new pair of boardshorts that were shorter in length, so I purchased these. The fit and design are exactly what I was looking for. Some previous reviews indicated that these run large, but I found that for me they fit ... Read Moreexactly the same in the waist as my other Patagonia boardshorts. However, I do normally purchase one size smaller in boardshorts than casual shorts. With casual shorts, I typically wear a 31" waist and 30" in boardshorts (Patagonia as well as other brands).
Attractive Board Shorts with a great fit
These board shorts are comfortable and true to size. They don’t fall down and I like the button fly rather than the Velcro fly some of my other shorts have. The colors are vibrant and attractive, and my gal likes the way they look on me. They are comfortable all day and do not chafe.
Nice shorts, waist size is off

I would imagine if I were surfing in some good strong waves, there would be a chance they would be pulled off of me even tied as tightly as possible. I'm keeping them b/c I love the pattern and the stretch, but just know that the waist size is not the equivalent to "normal" Wavefare shorts.
Nice product, but runs too big.
I always order 32 width and these shorts kept sliding down too far. When I would tighten it so that it would stay on it looked bad at the waist. Too bad because the shorts are nice. Can I get same in a 30 for exchange please? Thank you, Vance
