Sharkskin Performance Wear high performance, lightweight shortpants are perfect for intense watersports in warmer air and water temperatures. These lite shortpants have a mid-waist design for comfort, ‘liquid titanium’ compression over the upper thighs for endurance and recovery, and thin layer 4-way stretch neoprene in the seat area for superior comfort and fit.

These are the perfect shorts for surfski, kayak, jetski and any watersport where you want 100% performance with mid-thigh cover for your legs. Great for Adventure and Multisport events as they can be worn for swimming, running, biking and kayaking – making it possible to wear these shorts across all disciplines and avoid having to change your shorts in transition.

Can also be worn under your favourite boardshorts for SUP, foil and surf sessions.

About Performance Wear

Performance Wear uses the best combination of Chillproof 3-layer fabric where you need warmth + Compression fabric where you need maximum flexibility and for best muscle performance + 4-Way Stretch neoprene where you require extra comfort and abrasion resistance to create a range of garments that provide full protections from the elements. By seeking feedback from and listening to the world’s best watersports athletes Sharkskin has designed the ultimate performance watersports range.

    Swimming short

    Great product to use when swim training, seems to handle the chlorinated water in swimming pools very well compared to other previous shorts I have used.

    Hubby happy with purchase

    Pants has a higher back which is a great when in a seated position. Pants is a great fit with a padded seat which is very comfortable.

    Great fit

    Great quality - especially heavy duty draw string waist.

    Much thicker and more durable thsn the competition.

    Doesn't have a padded seat which would be a welcome improvement.

    Can't go wrong - best gear in the business.

    Very comfortable to paddle in. Shorts are a bit longer than I prefer but that's just a personal preference. I would certainly buy them again.
