A rash vest, also known as a rashguard, is a tight fitting lycra or spandex top that can be used to protect against UV rays while surfing. Rashguards do not have any thermal function, so it can’t replace a wetsuit. It can also be worn underneath a wetsuit if you have a sensitive skin to avoid skin rash. Rash vests are also used in competitions in bright colors so the judges can recognize different surfers in the lineup during the heat.
