A Speedo streaker is an individual – male or female – who walks or runs nonchalantly through public areas dressed solely in swim briefs or jammers (for men) or a swimsuit that does not extend past the groin or shoulders (for women). These public areas are typically not traversed by individuals in swimming attire or barefooted.

Patsee Ober of the Oak Streakers and Ober Reef Photography in California came up with the term as she and her local ocean-going Laguna Beach proudly clad in their Speedos, holding their swim cap and goggles, after a group swim.
