Product feature
  1. How to choose your UV protection T-shirt (Part 1)
    All of our UV-resistant T-shirts are UPF50+, i.e. they have the maximum level of sun protection. The choice between them will therefore be made based on the length of the sleeves and will depend on what it will be used for. The constraints are greatest for surfing so we decided to build our range primarily for surfing. For surfing, the choice will be made according to the duration of your sessions: 1 hour, 2 hours or 3 hours.
  2. How to choose your UV protection T-shirt (Part 2: According to the duration of the session)
    1 hour: Occasional practice. You can choose between a loose fit (priority to ease of dressing and comfort when dry) or a fitted cut (priority to comfort when wet). A loop system to connect it to the shorts ensures the stability of the product. 2 hours: Regular practice. Comfort when wet is enhanced by the seamless panels under the arms and the drawstring which further increases stability. 3 hours: Intensive practice. Additional warmth to help you stay in the water for longer.
  3. UV protection even when wet
    The fabric of this TRIBORD UV-resistant product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). In compliance with the EN-13758-2 standard, it guarantees effective protection against the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The integration of ceramic particles directly into the fibres of the product provides durable protection over time, even after washing.
  4. What does UPF 50+ mean?
    UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardised worldwide. It defines the protection level of a fabric and more precisely the proportion of UV rays it lets through. To meet the standards, it must block at least 95% of UV rays. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVB and 98% of UVA rays.
  5. Reduced chafing
    This UV protection T-shirt reduces friction with the surfboard or bodyboard. The loose fit of the T-shirt makes it easier to put on and is more comfortable when dry. Choose the fitted cut of the 100 or 500 top if you prefer comfort when wet or wear it under a wetsuit. Limitation of irritation has been proven for sessions of 1 hour. If you plan to surf for more than one hour, the 500 UV top will be a more suitable choice thanks to the seamless panels under the arms.
  6. Support system
    This UV protection water T-shirt has a loop at the front to attach the cord of your swim shorts to stop the top from riding up while you surf. This solution is recommended for sessions up to one hour. After an hour we recommend that you choose the UV 500 top, which also has a drawstring at the hips to ensure better stability. Unwanted riding up of the top could cause irritation to the lower abdomen.
  7. Quick drying
    The polyester textile is naturally quick drying. An additional water-repellent treatment prevents water absorption to limit shivering in case of wind. It also makes drying easier. The effects of this treatment will decrease after 5 or 6 machine washes; therefore to increase the life of the treatment, use a clear water rinse instead of washing with detergent.
  8. Warmth and wind
    The minimum water temperature recommended for the use of this UV-protection T-shirt is 22°C. Air temperature may increase or decrease this recommendation. Our thermal models (over 2 hours) are made of either fleece, neoprene or both. The presence of wind can have an impact which can be uncomfortable as soon as the wind exceeds 15 km/h: In this case, choose a model with neoprene.
  9. Multi water sports UV protection T-shirt
    Our UV tops are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers. Our design choices also make them compatible with other water sports such as swimming, kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand up paddle boarding).
  10. Behaviour when in the sun
    Although this T-shirt provides protection from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from the water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, etc., must be taken into account. Wearing this T-shirt does not exempt the wearer from adopting suitable behaviour: wear sunglasses, wear a hat or cap, regularly apply an appropriate sun cream, drink regularly, etc.

    I borrowed this shirt from my sister after a sunburn in Tobago and I only brought a full suit with me. It was very convenient and I was very happy to be able to use it. The only problem we had with it, is some yellow stripes on it, we suspect from using sun screen while wearing the shirt. My sister took it home to wash and I haven't heard whether the stripes are still there, but for this price, I will gladly buy her a new shirt and myself one as well while I am at it!
    No more sun burn, while not too hot!
    some yellow (sunscreen?) stripes on the shirt
  • Easy to wear and does its job perfectly

    Great t-shirt style rather than usual rash vests, gives great protection whilst looking good. Really good price and service received. Had a lot of comments from people who asked me where I got it from. Highly recommended and will be buying more.
