Rash Vests

Rash Vests

Rash vests have grown in popularity over the past few years and are now available in more advanced materials and fabrics. Initially these short sleeve polyester shirts were worn to stop that annoying surfing rash. Rash guards are now quick drying, lightweight and come with flat lock stitched to provide excellent warmth and comfort properties.

In the UK a rash vest is also worn as a surf shirt or beach top as they now offer UV protection of up to SPF fifty which makes them perfect for so many different purposes. These used to be seen as an under garment that did not really need to be fashionable or cool. All this has changed and the latest rash vests from the leading surf brand manufacturers have stacks of style and colour injected into them. At Boardshop we offer three different styles, short or long sleeve and the thicker thermal models. The materials used in rash guards are often ultra stretchy and made from a mix of nylon, polyester, spandex or Lycra. The thin properties of the surf rash vest combined with the stretchy materials make them skin tight which helps wick sweat away from the body and keep you cool and warm at the same time.

The rash vest is not only popular with surfers and water users but also families and beach users, because of the sun protection and warmth. People find rash guards the perfect t-shirt or beach top for that summer holiday or visit to the seaside. The youth surfing market have also taken influences from surf culture and the clothing worn to produce rash vests that have a similar look to current industry trends styled around wetsuits and board shorts.

The thermal rash guards on Boardshop use a mix of neoprene or polypropylene to help add a few extra millimetres to a summer or winter wetsuit, therefore allowing you to stay out even longer. Our range is extensive so if you cannot see what you want or have a question about if you need long or short sleeves, please speak with our customer service team.
