Breezy boardshorts for summer fun

A good boardshort is a quintessential piece of any pool or lakeside wardrobe worth its salt. You can throw them on for a casual beach day, they’re a great higher-coverage option if you’re not so keen on bikini-style swim bottoms, and they come in endless fun colours and patterns. What’s not to love?

Keeping it short and sweet

Whether you’re paddling along on your SUP or catching some rays on the shore, a good pair of boardshorts is versatile enough to take you through a whole day’s worth of watersports fun. You can swim around, dry off in the sun, throw on a t-shirt and some supportive sandals and get on with the rest of your day. Check out options from popular brands like Level Six, Patagonia and Prana to get into beach mode ASAP.
