The Best Surf Gear For Summer


Not that you need another reason to learn how to surf—the ultimate of all summer sports—but some of our favorite designers like Mara Hoffman and Emilio Pucci to name a few are making gorgeous wet suits and rash guards. If riding a long board in shoulder-high surf is too ambitious for your idea of a perfect beach day, these chic add-ons will provide extra coverage for boogie boarding, snorkeling and playing in the waves. Frankly, the prints and patterns are so cool, we’d wear them reading a book under an umbrella.
