Boardshorts: find the size that fits your measurements | Photo: Shutterstock

Boardshorts are an essential piece of your surfing kit. Our comprehensive chart will help you get the size that fits you best.

Surfers love boardshorts, not only because they're designed to adapt to the body's continuous movements but also because they're comfortable to wear outside the water.

However, it's essential to find the ideal size and, in many cases, specifications vary from brand to brand.

With our boardshorts size chart, you'll only need to measure yourself (waist/hip) to determine the right size of your favorite trunks.

Check out the charts for the most popular boardshorts manufacturers:
