Hydro Series Boardshorts

The best boardshorts are defined
by the details.

Stretch Hydroflow

Fused Waistband

Curved design stays snug to the hips through a full range of motion and eliminates a fabric layer for faster dry time

Recycled Polyester

Superlight but durable 87% recycled polyester/13% spandex fabric with 4-way stretch for the most dynamic movement

Sonic-Welded Seams

Stitchless sonic-welded seams increase comfort, reduce weight and allow the shorts to stretch as one piece
