YOU'RE MEANT TO SHINE, NOT BURN
Rash guard is a swim top designed to protect your skin from rashes due to friction or sunburn. They are ideal for watersports like surfing, snorkeling, paddleboarding, and swimming.
While a rash guard can provide some warmth and sun protection, it is not designed to replace a wetsuit. Our rash guards are not made from neoprene and are not intended to keep you warm in cold waters like a wetsuit would. As an option and for personal liking, you can use our rash guard underneath a wetsuit to prevent neoprene chafing.

Follow the care instructions to ensure the rash guard's longevity and appearance.
