How to choose your surfing top?
The top is a T-shirt close to the body to practise watersports, like surf, bodyboard or windsurf. You can wear it to avoid irritation or under a wetsuit for a better thermal protection. It is the essential protection against the sun and the cold when you are practising on the water.
There are 2 types of watersports tops:
The anti-UV top will give you a solar protection of 40 (solar protection factor for clothes), even wet and will protect you from irritation as well, from the direct contact with the board. The fin seams are made to avoid friction and irritation from the board.
The thermal top will allow you to keep your body heat when practising in cold water. You can wear it under a wetsuit to increase its thermal properties. The fin seams are made to avoid friction and irritation from the board or from the direct contact with the wetsuit.
