How Does the Sizing Run for Drifties™ ?

Because of the inner neoprene liner, Drifties tend to run ever-so-slightly small around the waist. If you're unsure on which size to go with, we generally recommend choosing a size UP for a more quality fit. Please contact us at for any additional questions on this!

For the lengths of both the outer shell (Drifties & Sessions) & inner liner (Drifties only), please refer to our size guide below for incremental measurements:

 BOARDSHORTS 28 30 31 32 33 34 36 38
WAIST 29" 30" 31" 32" 33" 34" 36" 38"
HIP 37" 39" 40" 41" 42" 43" 45" 47"

Which Boardshorts Have a Built-in Wetsuit Liner?

Our signature Drifties are the only current trunks we offer that have our patent-pending neoprene (wetsuit) liner. Our Session Boardshorts do not have the liner, but are typically offered in the same style & colorway as the Drifties.

In short – if the shorts you are purchasing are not called "
Drifties," then it will not have the liner.

How Do I Clean My Drifties?

Once you’ve thoroughly shredded the water wearing your neoprene-lined Drifties, keeping them clean is super easy. We recommend hand washing your Drifties in cold water, ideally with wetsuit cleaner if you have that available (not necessary though). Do not machine wash or machine dry your Drifties, as that will ruin the neoprene liner.

Once your Drifties are hand washed, they can be air dried out of direct sunlight to ensure the best clean and care for them!
