Chest and Rib Protection

Our surf rash guards have a thick, neoprene chest and rib guard that protects from bruising, allowing you to stay out longer while preventing soreness. Don't let your board or the pounding waves keep you out of the surf. By adding a padded chest piece that gets out of your way you can stay out without the board-bruise.

UV Protection

Our long sleeve Ribby, in white or black, doesn't only protect your chest and ribs. Stay safe from harmful UV rays with our long sleeve rash guard that is perfect for warm weather surfing. Don't let the sun or the waves keep on you the shore.

Letter from the founder

Have you ever had the experience of not surfing for a few weeks or a few months? Then, when it finally got good or you were able to get away for a surf trip, you got out in the water for a couple of long sessions the first day and just enjoyed the hell out of being in the water again. Then, the next morning you are more stoked than ever to charge again but when you hit the water and start digging, your chest bone starts talking to you in a bad way. You think - I'll get used to a little pain, it's been a while, I'm good. Still, you roll it back and forth as you dig for the next drop and it's hard to deny - it f,ing hurts! NO MORE! Our new RIBBY surfing Rashguard, with a simple 5mm neoprene pad, placed strategically on the chest will reduce that pain to nothing. You'll hit the water that second morning with this super lightweight, rash guard and feel like a million bucks. You'll stay out until you're worn out and you won't think twice about that bruised chest bone you used to get. Try it! Believe me, you will love it!
