Excellent fit!

Purchased for my son and he is pretty tall and skimpy, the pants fitted him well and he’s having a great comfort whilst wearing it for our beach outing!

waiting for the right time

Haven't used it yet in my pool, it was late in the season when I made the purchase. Like anything when I buy, I tried it on at home and it fits and look good.

Pretty but too tight!

Pretty much the title. Material also wasn't quite what I expected.. Would be nice if it fit to size though.

Nice shorts just undersized

Decathlon sizes are hit and miss sometimes and these come up a lot smaller than expected. At least one size maybe even two. The colours and pattern are nice, the material feels quality also.

Awful quality. Took one look at them and returned them. They don't even have an inner lining.

Far too short

Far too small and the length on the label says 20 inches when in fact they are just over 18 inches

Bought these shorts for an outing at the beach. Loved the fit. It’s very lightweight and even after being soaked in water. Used it at the pool another time and I can assure you I did manage to turn a few heads around. The style of these shorts is just amazing.

What are boardshorts?

Boardshorts are swimming shorts and more generally a style of swimsuit for men and, more recently, for women. They were created in the 1950s for surfing.In recent years, they have become a popular style of swimming suit.The name ”boardshorts” comes from their use in water sports using a board, such as surfing.It is primarily used to limit chafing due to the friction of the board.

How to choose your boardshorts

Sessions of up to 2 hoursIf you surf for up to 2 hours, you will need boardshorts that fit snugly around your waist but do not create discomfort. For freedom of movement, a slightly elastic material will ensure that leg movements are not obstructed.

How to choose the size of your boardshorts

Regarding choosing the size, we invite you to visit the size guide available on the boardshorts product file. The boardshorts 500 are available in sizes XS, S, S/M, M, M/L, L.Your shape can equally influence your choice. Here is some advice that could help you.If you have more muscles in the torso and legs, then choose a short pair that will highlight your physique. If you are slimmer and more slender, then go for longer boardshorts!

Choosing boardshorts based on the type of waistband

Elasticated waistbandHelps the boardshorts fit to different body shapes.Semi-elasticated waistband Ensures a good hold while still adapting to different body typesFlat waistbandEnsures a good hold of the boardshorts when falling into the waves.

Wave resistance

While surfing, whether it's due to duck diving or a wipe-out, it's not easy to reposition your boardshorts because they slide down your rear... So choosing the correct waistband becomes essential. Preferably an elasticated or semi-elasticated waistband with a drawstring or a flat waistband for a better hold.

Freedom of movement

In surfing, bodyboarding, and bodysurfing, the legs are very much in demand, so the men's swimsuit should not restrict either bending or swimming.A bi-directional or quadri-directional material contributes to this freedom of movement.The boardshorts 500 are made of a material offering a bi-directional stretch.

Reduced chafing

It is surely the most important criterion. It is common for the boardshorts or their seams to chafe. Our boardshorts are designed, both in terms of the shapes offered and the assembly methods, to limit chafing as much as possible during practice time.In addition, the boardshorts 500 benefits from a central strip that moves the seams away from the usual friction zones, which has the effect of significantly limiting the occurrence of irritation.

Quick drying

It is quite uncomfortable to feel the sand sticking to your boardshorts because they are still soaked with water. For this reason, choose a ”stretch” material that evacuates water more quickly.


Choosing long boardshorts really just depends on your preference. However, you should know that the shorter your shorts are, the greater the freedom of movement. The length measuring 20 inches is equal to a length of 51 cm in an average size S/M.
