Roark

If you're looking for high-quality boardshorts that can keep up with all your activities on the water this summer, then look no further than the Boatman Boardshorts 17" from Roark. They offer freedom of movement without sacrificing durability, which makes these shorts the perfect companion for swimming, surfing or stand-up paddleboarding. They're made from ultra-durable Cordura® nylon with four-way stretch, which allows them to be comfortable but able to stand up to aggressive wear. In other words, these aren't your typical stretchy, flimsy boardshorts. Plus, Roark is now offering the Boatman boardshorts with a lifetime guarantee, so you can rest assured that these will last trip after trip.
