Best rash guards for a summer SUP

Best rash guards for a summer SUP

Summer’s kicked in, and it’s getting really hot wearing your wetsuit. At the same time, you need some form of protection from the suns blistering rays. This is where a rash gueard comes in.

Sometimes referred to as a rashie, these elastic nylon tops are designed to stop you getting a rash on your chest and stomach whilst paddling a surfboard out on the water, but they’re also great for sun protection.

As you would expect, they’re lightweight and tend to fit tight to your body (although there’s a recent trend of looser options). You can choose between long or short sleeve, and they also have various sun protection ratings.

Below we’ve listed the top 5 for both men and womens. Some display certain sizes, but if you click through to the oroginal product, you’ll be able ot better select your size.
