    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-resistant T-shirt helps limit rubbing and chafing due to contact with the surfboard or bodyboard. It can also be used under a wetsuit to limit chafing, particularly around the neck and armpits. We carefully studied the tight-fitting cut of this Tribord Top and designed the seamless panels under the arms to limit irritation caused by paddling movements when surfing.We were therefore able to confirm that irritation was indeed limited during two-hour sessions.
    6. Support system
      The Tribord UV-resistant top has a drawstring at the hips. This lets you tighten the top so that it stays firmly in place. It has also been designed so that the drawstring of your boardshorts can be attached to it to stop the top from riding up while you surf.
    7. 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.
    8. 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).
    9. 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.

      As a swimming teacher, I ordered 5 of these tops as they seemed like good value. Unfortunately this was not the case as the draw string at the bottom (a new initiative) pulled through on the first time it was worn, so there is a useless length of string hanging down at the front of the waist band.
      Poor design using drawstring
      Response of the brand
      Dear Philip,
      Thank you for your feedback provided about the UV surf top. We are sorry to hear that you discovered some issues with the drawstring. I can imagine this is fixable part of this model? If there is nothing what can be done to put this drawstring back in place, then please return it for replacement. This drawstring is designed to help surfers to keep the top in place. Also you can attach it to your boardshorts to stop the top from riding up while you surf. If you are still not convinced about this model then please return it to your local store or use the online procedure for full refund or exchange. Once again apologise for any inconvenience caused.Kind regards,
