Spring suits and surf bikinis – Women’s surf is trending!
Surfing is a well-established sport in Europe and offers so much more besides exercise: the feeling of freedom, close ties with the ocean and a connectivity with nature.
Surfing is growing in popularity with women; as a result, more and more manufacturers attend to the particular needs of this target group. And that’s a good thing! Because surfing takes so much more than just the perfect wave.
Prepared for every adventure with the right gear
The choice of the right surfboard plays a major role for your surfing. Depending on your riding level, weight and personal preferences you have the choice between a variety of shapes, volumes and materials of the different boards. Brands such as Lib Tech offer you the full range. In our Surfboard Buyer’s Guide, you can find useful information and advice on the subject.
Then there is the choice of the perfect outfit. Every surf destination has different requirements, and while you will enjoy the warmth of a neoprene wetsuit in the cold Atlantic Ocean, a surf bikini might just be the right thing for travels to warmer waters. Luckily the options for surfer girls areincreasing steadily.
Many of our top brands like Roxy or Rip Curl have extended the functionality and selection of their surf ranges over the last few year. From comfortable leggings to springsuits to help in the chase of waves, you can find everything to perfect your next surf trip.
