With four-way stretch fabric for dynamic movement, our versatile, performance-focused Stretch Planing Boardshorts feature a slimmer profile with minimal drag. Similar to our trusted Wavefarer® Boardshorts design but with a performance fit that maximizes stretch and minimizes seams, the superlight Stretch Planings are made of a durable, fast-drying 91% recycled polyester/9% spandex blend with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and 50+ UPF sun protection. We’ve also replaced a traditional, multipiece waistband and fly with a fused waistband that eliminates a fabric layer and conforms to the shape of the hips, staying snug to the body through a full range of motion.
A forward inseam helps eliminate chafing, and the articulated outseam design moves more naturally with the body. Self-draining pocket on right hip has an internal key loop and a corrosion-proof plastic zipper with pull cord; the shorts can also pack into the pocket for travel ease. A notched hem provides additional mobility through the leg. Outseam is 19". Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

Nothing in my opinion speaks to the ideal of a revival wave better than waves like; Teahupoo and the ferocity of its truck sized lip and the fear it induces, or Cloud break with its contradictory beauty of alluring seductive barrels that break over sharp, unforgiving reef. This revival ideal also applies to Chicama, a hypnagogic wave nestled in the Peruvian dessert.
Flying with boards is always a little nerve racking, but I’m here to outline some information I’ve learned from travelling on various surf trips over the years. This should make it easier for you to decide what surfboards and equipment to bring, and most importantly, how to pack your gear so that it arrives there safely.
