Loose fitting surf shirts have quick become a favorite of stand up paddlers.
By the time you read this, the new Surf Rash Guard SwimShirt by Aquawear will be available for the 2010 season. Even though many will be captivated by the vibrant 3-D water print (from actual photography), some may ask, "what's different about this rash guard"? The answer is simple –– better sizing. In their research, the Aquawear team found one consistent complaint about traditional rash guard sizing–– the shirts are typically too small.
“So in addition to our stunning, one-of-a-kind water print, our approach at Aquawear is to size each rash guard swim shirt as a form-fitting tee,” says company General Manager, Rex Bledsoe. “These shirts can also be worn as a traditional surfer's rashie by selecting one size smaller. This is the new and best way to size rash guards according to our research” says Bledsoe.
