Introducing the Boatman Boardshort

Lifetime Guarantee

We grow genuinely attached to our favorite boardshorts, and we believe in relationships that last a lifetime. The Boatman is our hallmark boardshort, now with a Lifetime Guarantee thanks to a split construction of 4-way stretch paneling, combined with ultra-durable Nylon Cordura in key stress areas through the waist and back. The result is a rugged better half that’ll never leave your side and remains supple in the surf trip after trip.


We stand behind all the product we make. Our Boatman Boardshort is warranted against defects in materials and craftsmanship for as long as you own the item and we will repair or replace the item free of charge per our standard return policy. There is no need or requirement to register your warranty with Roark. See roark.com for more details.

“I wore the same pair on 6 or 7 surf trips straight. They survived bouncing off the reef, late nights, and a lot of good waves.”
