PVRE Technical Boardshorts
The hunt for the perfect boardshort can be a difficult one! Over the years we’ve been perfecting our boardshorts, every season making adjustments in the pursuit of a truly technical garment. Boardshorts should be lightweight, comfortable and stretchy. Your shorts will be doing their job when you don’t even realize you have them on! This summer, we’re proud to announce the release of the Eastmain boardshorts, a garment where technical knowhow and design have joined together to create the ultimate boardshorts.

For the true water enthusiast, here you have our most technical boardshorts. The Eastmain forms part of our PVRE series. These are garments where function and form are fused together to create a truly technical piece of performance clothing, made for action. Here we’ll explain the technical and design properties of the Eastmain.
Another property of the Eastmain is that they are quick drying. The fabric has been treated with a water repellant finish, which means the shorts are hydrophobic. The fabric will not take up excess water and you won’t be carrying around excess weight. This all means that the shorts will stay lightweight and comfortable so that you can stay out there longer.
The Eastmain has a fixed waistband. The advantage of this is that the flat band creates less drag in the water so you’re more hydrodynamic. The Eastmain also features an anti-slip silicon print on the inside of the waistband so the shorts are staying up even if you wipe-out. From paddling to sitting and sitting to standing, the Eastmain will stay right where it’s supposed to be. There’s a flat poly lace, lycra fly and velcro at waist closure. Remember that the fit is good when the waistband sits on your hips.
Design and other details
The shorts are printed with an all over geometric design and have an awesome colour gradient. There’s a contrast colour stripe running down the side of the legs. Measured from the waist, the legs are 21 inches meaning they reach the knee. This length will protect the skin on your thighs from chaffing while not causing knee-drag.
The back pocket was originally added to the design of the boardshort so that you could carry your wax with you into the line-up. The back pocket of the Eastmain is zippered and there’s a key cord on the inside. The pocket does not protrude from the profile of the short so it doesn’t create any drag. There are laser-cut seams and ventilation holes at pocket. These ventilation holes also help to drain the pocket of water.
