What To Wear While Surfing Warm Water?

As watermen, we are on a constant search for an endless summer. Whether your journey takes you to Southern California, the East Coast, Baja, Caribbean, Indonesia or Central America you are bound to encounter some toasty ocean water. The sun is brighter and more intense than ever before, making it important to stay protected and equipped in order to get the most out of every session. Wintertime water, although not as enjoyable, is easy to prepare for; throw on your wetsuit, grit your teeth and get out there. Warm water may be much more inviting, but it can be difficult to gauge just what to wear. On one hand, it’s warm water, so your initial response is to just put on a comfortable pair of boardshorts and jump right in the refreshing ocean. But here’s where the rogue wave of unpreparedness can wash you in – in order to last in warm water you need to be wearing the right gear and apparel. Here at Original Watermen we devote a large amount of time seeking out sun and warm waves and have perfected our go-to warm water attire from head to toe.


Original Watermen’s Mermaid Crest Trucker Hat is the ideal accessory for warm water. Whether you are surfing, fishing, or enjoying the sandy shores, this trucker hat keeps the sun off your face; and combined with its lightweight material, it keeps you protected with out burdening your noggin with any extra heat. Squeeze in that extra hour of high noon surfing with a lightweight trucker hat.
