Best Women Surf Bikinis
They are so many brands and surf bikinis out there, but not a lot of surf approved! How can all these amazing swimsuit companies not think of us surfers and make us some surf bikinis that works?
Talking to all women out there that are surfing, learning how to surf and are very active in the water. You know what I’m talking about and you feel my pain.
When surfing, you are not supposed to stand up on a wave and fix your bikini bottom or when duck diving or after a wipeout. But unfortunately, this is what we do. So I decided to narrow it down to the best surf bikinis brands and active swimmer to save you time, money and lots of tries and errors.
With any active swimwear and especially surf bikinis, it is not so much about style. It is all about functionality! But there are lots of nice brands out there, who do think about us surfer girls and make some great bikinis with both style and functionality. Many used recycled products, sustainable fabrics and enjoy promoting and supporting up and coming surfer girls.
So here it is my top 3 recommendations. From me to you! Surf bikinis and active swimmer that I have tried, tested and recommended.
Roxy Pop Surf Bikini
Roxy is the leading surf bikini brand in the world. With their new collection Pop Surf, they don’t just offer the basic bikini top and bottom. It all ranges from neoprene, one-piece surf leggings, rash guards, and of course the regular surf bikini. My favourite surf brand!
My favourite is the Neoprene Light which is available in blue and what they call marshmallow. It is beautiful and the design is really great. My favourite!
The bottom (click here to check current price on Amazon) always stays on since they are made of neoprene and you won’t have to worry about fixing it every second when surfing.
For the top of this bikini, you have two options; a crop top or a triangle:
The Crop Bikini Top (click here to check current price on Amazon). With this top you don’t have to worry about a thing, It will 100% stay on and is beautifully designed with a zipper in the back (kind of like a wetsuit).
Triangle Bikini Top (click here to check current price on Amazon). This top will not give you a weird tan line, like the crop top, would. It is very comfortable and does not fall off. The neoprene helps the bikini stay close to the skin.
Are you more the one piece type when surfing? Roxy offers a great variety of one piece but here is my favourite of all. The Roxy Pop Surf One piece Swimsuit. Available in two colors and made out to lycra just like a rash guard.
Rip Curl Mirage Surf Bikini
Rip Curl is another great surf brand that offers lots of great surf bikinis. The Mirage collection offers many very nice bikinis great for surfing and style. Some of them are reversible too so it offers you the opportunity to actually have 2 bikinis in 1.
My favourite Rip Curl Mirage bikini is the Moondust Bikini Top (click here to check current price on Amazon). This top is like a sports bra and is reversible which offers a light side and a grey side. The front looks very plunging but it does stay on very well when surfing. It sticks to your body very nicely.
The bottom is also very soft and stays on very well while catching some waves. The Moondust Bikini Bottom (click here to check current price on Amazon). It is reversible as well and has a great cut for tanning and surfing. It is very stylish and offers great quality for extreme sports.
For one piece, Rip Curl Mirage has a very stylish and active one piece. The mirage ultimate cheeky one piece (click here to check current price on Amazon). It is available in blue and black. A one-piece bikini will always stay on when surfing. But us surfer girls want to be stylish too, and Rip Curl Mirage did a great job with that one piece specifically made for surfing.
Billabong Surf Capsule Surfing Bikini
Billabong is another great surf brand that just came out with their new collection of surf bikinis called Surf Capsule. It all ranges from bikinis, crop tops, wetsuits, one piece, and so much more. Billabong is also one of my favourite brands along with Roxy, then comes Rip Curl.
The Surf capsule collection is made for surfer girls like us trying got get a bikini with functionality and style. Here is my favourite one in the collection.
The Billabong Surf Capsule Hawaii Lo Reversible Bikini Bottom (click here to check current price on Amazon). Just like the Rip Curl Mirage bikini, it is reversible so you get to have 2 bikinis in one. One side is black and the other is black, white, with a pinch of pink. It is designed with a cheeky bottom for the amazing style but also stays on very well when doing extreme water sports.
Just like the Roxy Pop Surf; it offers a couple different styles of the matching top. A high neck top and a triangle:
The High Neck Top (click here to check current price on Amazon) is just like a sports bra but in the back, it has a very nice lace, that is easy to tie. Not the best for tanning but very nice for surfing and not having to worry about fixing your top every wipeout.
The other option for bikini top is the Trillet Bikini Top (click here to check price on Amazon). This top is a little more colorful but matches really well with the Hawaiian bottom. It is pink and maroon color with some green straps. But like I said, it does look very nice together and will stay in place when surfing.
For the one piece option of the Billabong Surf Capsule collection; my favorite is:
The Neoprene Sleeveless Wetsuit One Piece (click here to check current price on Amazon). Just like many of the bikinis, it is available in two colors. It is made out of neoprene which is the material used for surf wetsuits, so it will warm you up a little too. But since it is sleeveless, you can easily wear this in the summer. The neoprene will help it stick to your body and is flexible for you to enjoy the waves without restriction.
There it is girls! My top 3 recommendations of surf bikinis; researched, tested, and now recommended to you. I hope that you find the best one for YOU since we are all different. Get it, and don’t ever worry again about your bikini when surfing!!
