What is a rashguard? (aka. “Rashie, rashguard, surfshirt..”)
A rashguard (rash guard shirt) is a shirt that keeps your belly off the board. Some people get a rash from rubbing their belly on the board all day. So a shirt is pretty much standard. Any shirt will do.. our surf shirts are designed for the purpose, made from lycra or woven fabric. we provide a rashguard/surfshirt for your use during your lessons. But we recommend that everyone buys one for sun protection for beach and swimming and surf related activities. (we sell them too or our website and in our store).
