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

For sessions under 1 hour If you surf for less than 1 hour, you need a men’s swimsuit that does not fall down each time you go under the water. Short boardshorts can enable freedom of movement, recommended for bodyboarding. The quickness of drying will be quite important so that sand does not stick to your boardshorts.

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. Boardshorts 100 Long are available in sizes S, M, L, XL, and 2XL. 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 waistband Helps the boardshorts fit to different body shapes. Semi-elasticated waistband Ensures a good hold while still adapting to different body types Flat waistband Ensures 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.

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 2-way or 4-way stretch material contributes to this freedom of movement.

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, which 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 20 inches is equal to a length of 51 cm in an average L size


Boardshorts 100 Long have 3 pockets, 2 of which are at the sides. The pockets are mesh lined to effectively drain out water and sand.


Boardshorts 100 Long feature a semi-elasticated waistband with an anatomic design that keeps them securely in place in the sea when falling in the waves.

Inner briefs

Boardshorts 100 Long have built-in briefs made from Bossis, a stretch mesh for an even better fit and reduced chafing.

Determining the environmental impact of our products

Decathlon has voluntarily opted to apply this environmental labeling scheme. For more information, visit:

Sun protection: the essential equipment for boardshorts

In summer, when it is hot weather but cool in the water, surfers tend to make their surfing sessions longer without changing their equipment. The risk of sunburn is therefore multiplied. Did you know? 10 to 15% of UV reflects off the water surface, meaning that 40 to 95% penetrates up to 10" underwater. This is why boardshorts combined with sun protection (UV top, etc.) are becoming the essential equipment for warm water surfing. Discover our sun protection range!
