Our Favourite Wetsuit-Friendly Surfbikini Tops.

Our Favourite Wetsuit-Friendly Surfbikini Tops.

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:

Mind Your Mana/Black
Sensi Graves Bikinis Colleen Top Mind Your Mana


Haight Ashbury/Clay 
Sensi Graves Bikinis Colleen Top Reversible Haight Ashbury Clay



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.
