UV Protection is a very serious matter at O'Neill! Every summer season we design a special collection with UV Protective clothing: mens UV shirts and rash guards that will protect you from harmful UV radiations. All our Lycra UV T-Shirts have top-of-the-line technical features, like: U.P.F. 50+, 4 way stretch, rash protection, a boardshort connector and quick drying fabric. Surf lighter and longer while protecting yourself from harmful UV rays.
Burning yourself in the sun can temporarily be very nasty, but after the sunburned is healed you will quickly forget about it. However, your skin will not forget: every sunburn you have during your lifetime raises the risk of developing skin cancer. This fact shouldn't mean that you're supposed to stay out of the sun. O'Neill gives you a new layer of skin and therefore supports you to spend every free minute out there in the water. We can provide you with a layer that can't be damaged and completely resists harmful UV rays: UV lycra shirts and rash guards, -or simply- skins!
Anyway, there is a second source that can massively reduce your pleasure in the waves. Not wearing a lycra can cause rashes that occurs from paddling on your waxed surfboard. You can prevent this by wearing a rash guard, which is not only good for your health and therefore performance on the board, but also for your style factor! O'Neill has good quality lycra UV shirts for men. Available in in a wide range of styles, colours and patterns. You have the choice between long sleeve UV Shirts, short sleeve Rash guards and even sleeveless UV tank tops. Pick your favorite and ride with style!
