The Surfer Look: What You Need To Nail It.
The first image conjured up of a female surfer usually involves a tan, lithe beach babe in a tiny bikini. However, female pros are increasingly calling out surf brands for the sexism inherent in these depictions of scantily clad athletes. In reality, a skimpy two-piece is the least practical thing to wear for a session, what with all the slipping, riding up, chafing and – worst-case scenario – getting washed away. Plus, even a sun-loving surfer chick knows that too much exposure causes sun damage. When it comes to surf style, more fabric is the way to go, so find a stylish one-piece with a high back and sleeves or, alternatively, surf leggings and a rash vest. theseea.com/collections/surf-suits, saltgypsy.com
