Fishing Boardshorts are a natural progression from AFTCO’s heritage as the world’s first and premier fishing short manufacture. Not just a swimming trunk, AFTCO boardshorts are for the ultimate waterman. In collaboration with the industry’s best surf and active wear designers, AFTCO saltwater fishing board shorts offer men’s short styling with appropriate fishing character. With technologies including AFLEX 2 & 4-way mind stretch fabrics, AFLITE quick dry material, AFGAURD water & stain resistance treatments, and AFBLOCK UV protection, AFTCO boardshorts can handle any on the water condition.
You will find that some of our boardshort styles for men are a more pure boardshort, with minimal pockets, while others have built in side seem pockets with easy drain technology that allows you to store your extra egg sinkers or throw on for a surf. All of our boardies come equipped with our signature Cordura® lined plier pockets.
