Great swim tshirt

Good sizing and good fit. I have Arthritis and sometimes the swimming pool is too cold and causes me pain. wearing the tshirt keeps my shoulders, neck and elbows warmer. It doesn't cause any drag as it fits next to the skin. It would also be good if you were a bit shy about just wearing a costume as it covers you up well and has a long fit.

rapid ride

great top to go under wetsuit on the beaches in Devon. Did its job which was to keep me warmer in the wetsuit. Body boarded on a chilly day and this really did help. Without it probably would've been out of the water earlier. Fits well and is confortable under the wetsuit.

gutes funktionales Shirt, fällt kleiner aus

Shirt ist funktional, fällt etwas kleiner aus (habe normalerweise S/M, habe diese in "M" bestellt!! Kordel am Shirtabschluss unnötig/Funktion erschliesst sich mir nicht, straffer Abschluss hätte es auch getan

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase
gute Funktionalität

Shirt passt gerade so. habe "M" bestellt, könnte aber etwas größer sein für optimalen Tragekomfort. Auch muss die Kordel am Shirtabschluss nicht sein. deren Funktion ist mir rätselhaft

für den Preis super surf-shirt

Shirt ruhig eine Nr. größer wählen, da eng wegen Ausschnitt am Hals.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric: 85.0% Polyester cationic, 15.0% Spandex

How to choose your uv protection t-shirt (part 1)

All of our UV-resistant T-shirts are UPF50+, i.e. they have the maximum level of sun protection. The choice between them will therefore be made based on the length of the sleeves and will depend on what it will be used for. The constraints are greatest for surfing so we decided to build our range primarily for surfing. For surfing, the choice will be made according to the duration of your sessions: 1 hour, 2 hours or 3 hours.

How to choose your uv protection t-shirt (part 2: according to the duration of the session)

1 hour: Occasional practice. You can choose between a loose fit (priority to ease of dressing and comfort when dry) or a fitted cut (priority to comfort when wet). A loop system to connect it to the shorts ensures the stability of the product.2 hours: Regular practice. Comfort when wet is enhanced by the seamless panels under the arms and the drawstring which further increases stability.3 hours: Intensive practice. Additional warmth to help you stay in the water for longer.

Uv protection even when wet

The fabric of this TRIBORD UV-resistant product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). In compliance with the EN-13758-2 standard, it guarantees effective protection against the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The integration of ceramic particles directly into the fibers of the product provides durable protection over time, even after washing.

What does upf 50+ mean?

UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardized worldwide. It defines the protection level of a fabric and more precisely the proportion of UV rays it lets through. To meet the standards, it must block at least 95% of UV rays. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVB and 98% of UVA rays.

Reduced chafing

This UV-resistant T-shirt helps limit rubbing and chafing due to contact with the surfboard or bodyboard. It can also be used under a wetsuit to limit chafing, particularly around the neck and armpits. We carefully studied the tight-fitting cut of this Tribord Top and designed the seamless panels under the arms to limit irritation caused by paddling movements when surfing. We were therefore able to confirm that irritation was indeed limited during two-hour sessions.

Support system

The Tribord UV-resistant top has a drawstring at the hips. This lets you tighten the top so that it stays firmly in place. It has also been designed so that the drawstring of your boardshorts can be attached to it to stop the top from riding up while you surf.

Warmth and wind

The minimum water temperature recommended for the use of this UV-protection T-shirt is 72°F. Air temperature may increase or decrease this recommendation. Our thermal models (over 2 hours) are made of either fleece, neoprene or both. The presence of wind can have an impact which can be uncomfortable as soon as the wind exceeds 9 mph: In this case, choose a model with neoprene.

Multi water sports uv protection t-shirt

Our UV tops are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers.Our design choices also make them compatible with other water sports such as swimming, kitesurfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, sea wading or SUP (stand up paddle boarding).

Behavior when in the sun

Although this T-shirt provides protection from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from the water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, etc., must be taken into account.Wearing this T-shirt does not exempt the wearer from adopting suitable behavior: wear sunglasses, wear a hat or cap, regularly apply an appropriate sun cream, drink regularly, etc.

Product testing

Developed and tested by our design teams in Hendaye, France. The components used for this product are laboratory tested to ensure the best possible quality and durability.
