CP value is very high

The quality is very good, but the pocket is too small. I suggest you make it a little larger to hold at least a mobile phone.

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.Over past years they have become a popular style of swimming suit.The name ”boardshorts” comes from their use in watersports 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 FOR UP TO 2 HOURSIf you surf for up to two hours, you will need boardshorts that fit snugly around your waist but do not create discomfort. For freedom of movement, a slightly elastic component 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 S, M, M/L, L, L/XL and XL.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 which will highlight your figure. 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 is not easy to reposition your boardshorts because they slide down your buttocks... 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 swimming costume should not restrict either bending or swimming.A two-way or four-way stretch component contributes to this freedom of movement.The boardshorts 500 are made of a material offering two-way stretch.

Reduced chafing

It is surely the most important criteria. It is common for the boardshorts or its 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” component which evacuates water more quickly.


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