Surf Clothing Brands

Like most sports, surfing requires special tools and clothing but lucky for those interested in beach sports, surf wear like trunks, shoes and shirts are available from American Rag, Speedo, iXtreme and others. When looking for surf clothing brands, it's important to prioritize and make sure all the basics are covered.

The primary piece of gear a surfer needs next to a surf board is a special made pair of surf trunks. Regular swimsuits won't do because there is danger that the impact from a wave could loosen or remove a regular suit, an embarrassing situation for sure. To make sure surf trunks stay in place, they use a double closure; an elastic waistband and a strong drawstring cord. Some surfer trunks also have a special zippered and secure key pocket.

A good long sleeved shirt is useful when spending time out of the water and during cooler weather. A loose fitting button or snap style shirt is easy to put on and take off again and a solid color will match most printed trunks. A lot of beach types seem to prefer bright floral print shirts, but other colors and patterns are also available.

A sturdy pair of beach shoes can help protect feet from sharp rocks and shell fragments. Thongs or slip-on sandals with tough non-slip soles are convenient, though shoes that are intended to be worn in the water should have secure straps and buckles so they don't come off and disappear. All closures like buckles, drawstrings and zippers have to be extra strong on specialized surf clothing brands.

Boys surfer trunks are great for surfers-in-training, providing the same great benefits for kids as they do for adults—fast drying fabrics, a secure double closure and brightly colored fabric that can be seen from a distance for safety.
