Ocean & Earth Indo Surf Hat
The Ocean & Earth Indo Surf Hat gives you great sun protection in the surf. A key feature is the brim. It extends all the way around the hat, not just at the front, so you get coverage and protection all the way around your head. Your ears, back neck and part of your shoulders all end up in the shade of the brim. You get protection from direct overhead sunlight. At the rear there’s a legionnaire flap that gives extended neck protection and creates shade and a spot for cool air to circulate. This flap is also removable if you feel it’s annoying. The high crown provides an area of separation so that the sun beating down doesn’t heat directly into your scalp.
When surfing you need the hat to stay put. Padded neoprene straps comfortably secure the hat around the side of your head to under your neck. These straps have ear and drainage holes so hearing is maximised. A safety loop connects to a rash shirt or wetsuit so the hat won’t wash away in a wipeout. Internal of the hat is a neoprene head band with velcro adjustment. This gives you a good fit and comfort. The hat is quick dry so you don’t carry any extra water weight. A handy stash pocket is in the top of the hat to store your key.
Additional vents flush water out the hat rear so it’s almost always immediately free of water after a duck dive. The Ocean & Earth Surf Hat is a great surf accessory. To find out more on how Ocean & Earth can power your surfing check here: Ocean & Earth Complete Surfing
