I bought a pair of swimming shorts last year (I can say that now it's 2011) and really used them for the first time last week when I spent the good part of five days in a pool. I was bombing, playing Marco Polo (with and without 'fish out of water' rules), running, stretching, flipping, etc. and not once did they come off, feel uncomfortable or dry slowly. They are by far the best board shorts I've ever owned. check out their website here and grab a pair of your own very soon.
