handsome pants

As a fan of orange, I like it, but there is a part where the rope is easy to loosen, maybe it’s my problem, but it’s still cool and there’s nothing wrong with it.

Nice swim shorts

We are satisfied with the swimming shorts. After 14 days at the sea, the colors are still saturated, they fit well, there is a small zipped pocket on the side. The only thing I would complain about is that the tie string is shorter, so it easily pulls out of the top holes when dressing and undressing.

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.

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.

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.

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 18 inches is equal to a length of 45.5 cm in an average M size.
