There are still a few situations where board shorts don't really fly and most of them involve the in-laws. Made from the same durable and quick-drying nylon (38% recycled) as our most classic board shorts, the new Wavefarer Walk Shorts blend water-friendly performance with an everyday walk-short silhouette. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish, 50+ UPF sun protection and bartacked interior drawcord give them great functionality when you're surfing, bouldering or back-flipping into the lake; classic flat-front chino styling with belt loops saves you from disapproving looks at dinner, while the flat-lying rubber button fly and closure provide long-wearing comfort in any situation. The two front slash pockets and two rear pockets have self-draining mesh pocket bags; the right rear pocket is buttoned, has an internal key loop and is Surf Dry Bag-compatible. Outseam is 20". Fabric is bluesign approved.
