Stylish Surf Rash Guards For Women

Stylish Surf Rash Guards For Women

Because a red-raw burnt back just ain’t sassy.

If you’re surfing in a tropical location, you’ll need to come prepared to protect against the sun.

Sure, you can don a bikini and slather on sunscreen – but if out in the lineup for hours on end (and when in Bali/Panama/Costa Rica – you certainly will be) you’ll need to be sun-smart.

Those shoulders and arms will take a beating from the harsh rays, especially if they’ve been wrapped up in wetsuit neoprene for a while. Added to this, most surf vests look naff (like you’re paddling out with a surf school) and tend to sag in all the wrong spots.

Hence, here’s our favourite surf rash guards to stay stylish, for girls that rip.

Salt Gypsy


Salt Gypsy Turtleneck Rashguard - PRE ORDER

You’ll be all starry-eyed over this stylish print: a deep navy studded with stars. The long sleeve turtleneck crop offers sun protection for the thinnest part of our skin: our neck and décolletage, and best of all, it’s made from recycled salvaged plastic from the ocean.

Team up with the gold bottoms to look like a young Brigitte Bardot.

Plus, if you’re feeling the purse strings are rather tight, Salt Gypsy offer the option to pay in 4 interest-free fortnightly payments.
