Olaian surfing anti-UV T-shirt

Choosing your anti-uv top for surfing

Anti-UV T-shirts are designed to protect you against the sun's rays. Some anti-UV T-shirts and tops are available in thermal and neoprene versions to reduce that cold feeling when you stay in the water for a long time.

All our anti-UV clothes are UPF 50+ to guarantee the best possible protection against the sun. Even when they are wet, they filter out more than 95% of UV rays. The tighter the fit, the less you will be irritated by your movements when paddling and by friction with the board. Anti-UV tops are also available in thermal versions (fleece interior) and neoprene versions to reduce that cold feeling.

The specific textile and water-repellent treatment allows the water to escape through the mesh, for ultra-fast drying. Consequently, the chill factor due to the wind is reduced significantly.

Remember to apply sun cream to the parts of your body that the top does not protect.

Or use an SPF50+ mineral sun stick for your face and lips. Our stick is seawater-resistant and is not toxic for coral or marine biodiversity. It respects the ocean and is suitable for all outdoor activities.
