Arrow Bathing suits

For those that are on and off the boat, sometimes multiuple times a day, in and out of the pool etc. What are type of bathing suit are you guys wearing?

I just cant seem to find something I am comfortable in all day...I get, well never mind, you can imagine. I cant go on with wearing what I'm wearing...its starting to REALLY cut into my "after kids go to bed time"

any advice?

Default Oneil/Rip Curl

I only wear O'Neil or Rip Curl Products/Board Shorts. Made by Surfers, not some corporate or fashion apparel place.

Aftco makes good stuff too.

I am 6 foot and around 270 so I am most comfortable and look my best in a Speedo. They are also quick drying and the stars & stripes one looks great on the 4th of July weekend. I also like the minimal tan lines and for days I will just be cruising the sandbars there is room for a potato in front.

It looks like a lot of these don't have any type of liner...What do you guys where under them? I have the Under Armor wicking tighty whiteys but they don't seem to work too well for all day.

whatever I buy (panamas, rip curl or whatever) if it has the mesh lining I remove it, easy mod and you don't get that rash shaft deal going....just like wearing boxers....

I wear board shorts with nothing under them. I used to wear boxers under them but them the would take forever to dry and normally would cause the problems you describe.

Those are only good for when another boat pulls up too close and fishes right on top of you, come out in one of those and off they go, no one wants to fish close with that in sight.

Most effective if you do not "Manscape"...

x2 for the Hurley phantoms. They dry really fast, have a little stretch in the fabric, no velcro on the fly and a flap to keep anything from poking out the fly/tie.

Macy's has excellent sales mid summer and just before fall. I think I paid less than $100 for four.

Any of the patagonia's....very quick drying.

Or, if you're worried about rash or chafing:

The paddler shorts are seasonal and for some reason they're not on Patagonia's site right now. I've worn this style for 6+ paddles and haven't rashed. They aren't as quick drying though because of the slick nylon liner though. EDIT: and these have a much shorter inseam than some others...I think it's 18" while many surf shorts are 21-24"
