The razor-sharp reefs of Java were at the outer limits of surfing in the ’70s, and they still test the most hardened barrel hunters today. Made from superlight, durable and fast-drying and 100% recycled polyester, the Stretch Hydro Planings are the highest-performing board shorts in our line. They feature 50+ UPF sun protection and a DWR (durable water repellent) coating; 2-way mechanical stretch offers maximum flexibility in firing, top-to-bottom surf. A low-drag waistband and slim profile through the thigh and leg provide superior function; the flat-lying gasket fly is optimized for comfort while paddling; a bartacked ladderlock drawstring closure adds long-lasting durability and keeps the shorts secure. The self-draining flap pocket on the right hip has a corrosion-proof plastic zipper with added zipper pull for ease of use; the pocket also doubles as a self-storage pouch. Outseam is 21".
