About Women's Rash Guards and Surf Apparel:
Water sports are some of the most fun sports there are. A big part of having fun though is not getting nasty abrasions, that’s where having an effective women’s rashie comes into play. A rashguard is not something that you want to be without when you are surfing or wakeboarding. Not just because the rashguard protects you from being irritated by the water, it also makes you look like a super cool pro.
Rashguards are essentially a combination of a tee shirt and a wetsuit. They are a must-have for anyone who wants to look cool while hanging ten. That doesn’t mean that you couldn’t just hang out around the beach and wear a rashguard to look like you are into water sports, but if you are going to have one you might as well use it.
I was wearing my rash guard at the beach the other day and I got roped into doing an amateur surf contest. Now, I am not usually really big on competition, but I am a quarter mermaid on my mothers side so I know my way around the waves. It also helped that the guy who was pushing me into doing the competition was a really cute surferboy. Anyways, I was out on the water waiting for my turn to compete when a merman came out of nowhere, he agreed to follow alongside my board and make sure I stayed upright, apparently he knew my mom or something from when they were kids. Long and weird story short, I won the contest and earned the respect of the surfer guys and the merfolk. A pretty productive day, and I did it all while wearing my women’s rashguard.
