Blue Boardies
Christo Grayling, Alberta Canada and Baja, Mexico


Dear Patagonia,

It is with mixed emotions that I return these boardies to you after 15 years of outstanding service. I purchased them from your retail store in Ventura and since then they have had a busy and productive life.

They paddled rivers throughout Canada, Chile, Sri Lanka and the States, surf trips to India, Sri Lanka, Indo, Aussie, Peru, Ecuador, all over Mexico and have spent way in excess of 60 months accumulated in Southern Baja, where we live 1/2 time. It took years before they required any maintenance, well, and as you can see, they have a new ass end. A recycled beach umbrella has done the job well. Also, the material flap that was hanging off for ages has now been sewn into the butt end of another pair of (non Patagonia) boardies that fell apart… so they still live on.

The cut and design of these are amazing, it is hard to find a pair that fits me so well… old school style works for this older shorter guy. So, hopefully your R&D group may find some way of bringing back this functional style and rugged piece of gear. Oh yeah, are they still covered by your legendary warranty and repair service?

Thanks for helping life be that much better and making great gear.

-Christo
