A shorter version of the original Wavefarer, the Minimalist Wavefarer Boardshorts from Patagonia provide solid style when you're kicking into thumping bodysurf barrels. Made of a lightweight, durable and quick-drying SUPPLEX® nylon with 50+UPF sun protection and a DWR finish. The Minimalists offer a comfortable fit with a 3-piece, self-lined waistband that contours to the hip.
Features a forward inseam to help prevent chafing with an improved seat and side-seam design to promote natural movement. Flat-lying fly with single rubber button is optimized for comfort while paddling.
100% SUPPLEX® Nylon
Self-draining pocket features noncorrosive, recyclable plastic zipper
Includes internal key loop and added zipper pull for ease of use
If you don't like your boardshorts hanging down below your knees, the Minimalists are for you. Simple, functional, quick drying and bomber, I like them so much I got another pair. Now, if I put on a pair of 21" inseam shorts I feel like I'm wearing a dress.
