Stoic Thrive SUP Short - Men's
Your typical board short might dry quickly, but the Men's Thrive SUP Short dries with lightening speed and it boasts supreme comfort thanks to highly breathable Thrive fabric—top that, surf companies. Need another reason to ditch your simple, plastic-bag-like boardies? Stoic engineers outfitted this short with fully-welded construction to eliminate chafe-inducing seam bulges, and this short has a tapered fit that plays nice with the stance required for stand-up paddleboarding or surfing.
- Breathable and dynamic Thrive stretch-weave material vents body heat and wicks sweat away from your body while you paddle
- Thrive material dries quickly once you're out of the water
- 3-D Ergonomic fit tapers from the waist to hips and uses a slightly looser fit towards the knees so this short can move as you move
- Welded construction eliminates annoying seam bulk and reduces the opportunities for uncomfortable chafing in or out of the water
- Thigh zip pocket gives you a quick and easy place to store your car keys or a small snack

A brilliant pair of shorts
August 25, 2012
I'm a huge fan of Stoic's gear, and the SUP Thrive shorts don't disappoint. I don't do many watersports, but I always like having a quick-drying, breathable, and light pair of shorts for rock climbing.
These shorts are really stretchy so you have a full range of motion with your legs, and have flat seams, so after moving around for a while, you don't get chaffed by all the stitching.
The side pocket is also in a really convenient place. It's not quite on the side of your legs so it doesn't swing wildly witch each step. It's more on the back of your leg- it's pretty much like a normal back pocket that's just a little lower. It's a really nice subtle touch.
5/5 stars for these killer shorts
What is the difference in between these and the other Thrive
What is the difference in between these and the other Thrive shorts, other than the thigh zipper pocket and the cool blue color option???? The material make-up is the same, as well as the fit and the welded seams....just curious. the blue is pretty stellar though

Best Shorts Ever!
August 6, 2012
First let me clear up the pocket question about the difference between these and the regular Thrive shorts. The regular Thrive shorts have two front pockets, these SUP thrive shorts have two front pockets AND a zippered side pocket (IE, 3 pockets, the perfect amount)
With that out of the way, these things rock! they are super super light (I couldn't believe it when I first picked them up), they shed light water, don't take on much weight when they do saturate, and stay comfortable all the way through. (it's like if a board short and a regular short had a super baby) I have used them for running, skim boarding at the beach, and hanging out at a family gathering... performed amazing for all three situations. These are so awesome I might just buy a second pair and throw the rest of my shorts out.
