The ocean is our natural habitat. Watermen are in the water so much it’s a wonder that we haven’t grown gills and scales. Although we don’t have this adaptation (yet), we do have rash guards. Our rashguards serve as a second-skin, protecting you from rashes and the sun’s harmful UV rays. They also offer you a streamlined, fluid motion for top performance in the water. And guys, do not forget our rash shorts for surfing, what we call our Watermen shorts or board short liners.

Original Watermen’s rash guards are made with a special blend of 78/22% Xtra-Life NylonLycra combined with an UPF/SPF 50+.This combination makes ours a versatile UV shirt and surf rash guard.

Make your lifeguards and watermen easy to identify with Original Watermen’s rashguards that are fully customizable with various color schemes and silk-screen options. We offer them in a short sleeve and long sleeve rash guard options.

Don’t let a rash drop-in on your session, it literally is the ultimate burn. Performance is key when paddling or swimming, whether you’re chasing down a big set, eyeing up a halibut, or assisting unaware tourists out of a rip current; you need to count on your arm movement to work in a fluid motion, you need your arm pits rash-free. Wearing Original Watermen’s UV shirts and rash guard shorts for surfing helps ensure that you get the most out of your outdoor water workout.

That is not all! Rashguards are one of the most practical pieces of clothing that you can own. Not only are they comfortable, but they are also extremely low maintenance and dry fast, even while being worn. Rashguards will keep you warm in cold weather, yet cool in summer, because they draw moisture away from your body.

Feel both comfortable and protected at the same time on your next ocean adventure with an Original Watermen rash guard. Side note; they are excellent for traveling since they quickly go from wet to dry, which is exactly what you need when it comes to packing!

Finally, when the day has come to an end, be it a work day or play day, don’t forget to get comfortable in a pair of our favorite retro shorts and a Watermen hoodie.
