The Wavefarer Boardshorts are durable and quick-drying women’s surf shorts with some added flexibility. They're made from performance blend of a 96% nylon and 4% spandex with a DWR coating and weave that delivers 50+ UPF sun protection. The contoured, three-piece self-lined waistband offers a secure and comfortable fit against the hips and fastens with a durable bartacked ladderlock drawstring. Patagonia equipped these boardshorts with a self-draining rear pocket, which has a corrosion-proof plastic zipper and an inner key loop. These surfy women’s swim bottoms are also Fair Trade Certified™ sewn, meaning Patagonia paid premium wages to the people who stitched the shorts.
