As the ocean beckons and the waves call your name, it's essential to be equipped with the right gear for a surf session. One crucial piece of equipment every girl surfer needs is a one-piece surf suit. One that protects you from both the suns rays and rib rash.
Below are some key factors to consider when purchasing a one-piece surf suit.
Material Matters: Opt for a material that has a 50+ UV protection and we recommend supporting sustainable brands that use lycra made from ocean waste. This way you can help clean up the ocean, while surfing in it!
The Right Thickness: A double lined front is a must, this gives you more protection against rib rash, more warmth and of course durability.
A Perfect Fit: A well-fitting surf suit is essential for maximum comfort and functionality. The suit should fit snugly against your body without being excessively tight.
A Back Zipper: Back zips are a must for surfing, because the last thing you want is a zipper bruise or for it to scratch your board.
Balancing Price and Value: While it's tempting to go for the cheapest option, remember that quality and performance often come with a higher price tag. Find the right balance between affordability, sustainability and value, considering factors like material quality, construction, and durability.
