We aren't all lucky enough to surf warm water all year round.
Honestly, I absolutely love the colder season in the Northern hemisphere.
It often brings the best and cleanest swells, with the added bonus of not another soul (with exception of seals) in sight.
My best surfing memories are from the midst of winter, wrapped in the thickest neoprene with only my face having to brave the real elements. Everyone has their preferences, but I prefer wearing a bikini under my suit for hygienic reasons and ease of changing afterwards without flashing and blinding anyone in the car park.
Heading in for a winter surf at my local break.
Not all bikinis are comfortable to wear under neoprene though.
Ideally there will be no ties anywhere as they'll dig in, untie or move around when changing. You don't want them too tight either as they'll give you a bit of the michelin-man-effect in your wetsuit. So here are our favourites from our collection:
1. Sensi Bikinis Colleen Top
No ties and a beautiful back detail means you can wear this awesome top with or without a suit and even as a sports bra for your yoga practice.
We currently have this top in 2 reversible colourways:
2. Sensi Bikinis Dawn Top
Another simple yet stylish top with a stand-out back detail and no ties.
No big underbreast elastic means it feels a little lighter when worn and won't cut in under your suit. You can choose for 'the little black bikini' effect or the intricate Amalfi print.
3. Salt Gypsy Luna Surf Crop
Looks so good, you'd want to wear it on a night out.
Soft fabric with no straps or elastic means no digging in under a suit.
We currently stock this top in 3 different colours:
4. Dkoko Om Top
Brighten your cold water surf session with this flowery top by Dkoko.
Another lovely back detail that will stay put with digging in.
This top has a sports-bra look in the front with the one-of-a-kind back strap, the signature back detail by Zealous Clothing. It can also be worn for low impact sports activities or under your favourite open back top.
They are reversible too!
6. Zealous Zimzala Top
If you like a tropical print without too many bright colours, this might be the one for you. A sports-bra like top with a strappy back but no ties.
Our colourway is the Pink Paradise, reversible to Black.
8. Sensi Graves Katie Top
A high neck top with a cut out detail in the front and a scoop back.
Super comfy for bigger busts and a personal favourite!
