Board Shorts

If you have a little boy who's fond of the water, you're going to want to get him a pair of boys' board shorts. These shorts are perfect for swimming and playing in the sun. While originally made for surfing, kids board shorts are now popular as a summertime swimsuit for all types of water activities.


Made from a quick-drying material, board shorts for boys are usually a little longer than traditional swim trunks, extending down to just above the knee. This provides more coverage and protection from the sun. Some have an elastic waistband for a comfortable and secure fit, while others have a drawstring for a more customized fit. Either way, both types of waistbands are designed to stay in place, even when your little one is playing in the waves or jumping off the diving board.
