YOU ARE AN EXPERT SURFER
You surf intensively, it is your favourite sport.During your sessions, you paddle out to the line up, duck dive under the breaking waves if you are on a shortboard, or turtle roll if you are on a longboard.You show commitment in powerful waves of more than one metre.Your swimsuit must stay in place for each of your movements, whatever the strength of the wave.We have designed a range for you that is suited to your intensive practice and your body shape.
Ideal for surfing and bodyboarding, the Carla one-piece provides full coverage to protect surfers from friction against the board and wax.The arms and shoulders are free to move for better paddling and the seams have been carefully placed by our garment designers for a figure-slimming effect.The back zip makes it easier to put on and take off.
STAYS IN PLACE IN THE WAVES: THE TEST
We design swimsuits that promise to stay in place in the waves.To test them, we use a panel of at least 12 female surfers with different body shapes who will follow a test protocol in a pool at our design offices in Hendaye.This protocol aims to reproduce the sensations experienced by surfers when being thrown around by a wave.If this test is conclusive, we go surfing in the sea to test our swimwear in real conditions.
DRY SIZING AND WET SIZING
To ensure a perfect fit in the water, it is important to choose the right size while you are dry because once they are in the water, swimsuits become looser.We therefore recommend you buy the correct size.The swimsuit needs to fit snugly against your body in the fitting room, you should feel supported.The elastane contained in certain components used in the design of our swimsuits softens and relaxes in the water.
DO YOU WANT TO EXCHANGE YOUR SWIMSUIT?
Is the size or style not suitable for you?Would you like to exchange it at your Decathlon store?No problem, just be sure not to cut off the label of the swimsuit in case you want to exchange it.
