How to choose the best surf bikini

How to choose the best surf bikini

The other day a friend of mine asked if I could create a guide on how to choose the best surf bikini. My friend’s seemingly random request made me realise this precious information is second nature to me and I have been taking it for granted. I hadn’t considered that there are women out there who are confused by the ocean of swimwear options.

So if you are one of these women, I am writing this for you, the ultimate guide on how to choose the best swimwear for surfing.

Surfer profile: Tia Coulter

My first real memories of surfing are paddling out on the front of dad’s board and surfing tandem with him. When he paddled us onto waves, he would pull me up and hold me by the rashie or wetsuit so I didn’t fall off. He wasn’t bothered about wave size either, we used to paddle into 3-4 footers which freaked me out a bit, but I loved surfing, especially being cheered on by the local Bluff crew I grew up with.
