Which are the Best Surf Bikinis in the UK?

We’ve all been there, a beautiful set comes through and you begin your paddle stroke, then disaster strikes, and you feel your bikini slip out of place. 

You’re now faced with a choice; ride the wave or save your dignity – what do you do?

Wouldn’t it be nicer to head out on the water knowing that this decision would be the last thing on your mind? 

Bikinis can let surfers down in a magnitude of ways. 

Bikini bottoms can slip to the side and risk exposing front bums, back bums and God knows what else. Another classic is the ultimate bikini wedgie – not a cool look. 

Dodgy bikini tops are at risk of moving in unwanted directions or falling off completely, and don’t get us started on string bikinis…

The provocation of surfing is how dynamic you need to be on the board, how agile you can be when moving from one position to another, and how much power you can produce paddling through big sets. 

Flimsy and non-technical swimwear can’t support these demands.
