Swim trunks , a.k.a . swimming briefs :   These can come in nearly any length but usually hit mid-thigh . No matter what the outside designing is they often have a cheap mesh lining covering what a pair of Speedos would . They may or may not have an elastic waistband . They are meant for swimming , the majority are store brands , and they cost a lot less . You would not be real comfortable expenditure various hours surfing into the sea with a pair of them on . The fabric also tend to be heavier and harsher .   The guys I know wear jammers for swim and boardies for surfing .
