Surfmud Sunscreen is great for the Aussie beach environment. Aussie owned and made so it’s perfect to address Australian conditions. Surfmud claim they’ve taken an existing formula and dumped out what they didn’t like and added only good things. The result is a physical blocker sunscreen. This means the sunscreen blocks the harmful rays of the sun from reaching your skin. So Surfmud is like a zinc that you would use on key areas rather than something applied all over your body.
Protection is provided against harmful affects of the sun and also harsh affects of the surf and wind. Natural products make up many of its ingredients. There’s bees wax, natural lanolin, coconut oil-derived CC/C (certified natural), kaolin clay and iron oxides. Made by surfers for surfers the claim is that their sunscreen works out better that way. Once applied it provides all day cover. Surfmud Sunscreen at Manly Surfboards.

How do I get maximum surf time out of my Surfmud Tinted Covering Cream?
Surfmud Tinted Covering Cream is an all day waterproof barrier protecting against the harsh conditions faced by surfers. To maximise its effectiveness and your surf time we recommend rubbing the zinc into your skin in a circular motion as you would a normal lotion – then finishing with a second visible layer. Note the layer of Surfmud does not need to be thick – just rubbed in and spread evenly to the areas you want to protect. Zinc is a physical barrier so if you can see it you will be covered.
Can I apply Surfmud under my eyes and to my forehead?
Yes – Surfmud will NOT wash into your eyes. Surfmud also has NO chemical blockers or preservatives which can irritate eyes. Surfmud can be applied underneath the eyes and on top of your eyelids – be careful not to rub Surfmud into the eye.
How often should I re-apply Surfmud?
Apply Surfmud as recommended and you will get extended surf time out of it. We recommend to re-apply every 4 hours.
How do I remove Surfmud from my face?
The best way to remove Surfmud is to use face-cleansing wipes then wash your face as per normal. Other than that you can do what we do and have a dedicated Surfmud washer ready to go in the shower.
