Daughter (age 12) loves them

My daughter loves the board shorts. She hasn’t worn them swimming yet, but she likes the option of extra coverage and loves having pockets.

Just what I wanted

I have not used them yet. I live in the Bahamas and got them to use when my grands come. They look like they will dry fast and hold up well. They are just what I was looking for

Best SUP Shorts!

These are comfortable, flexible, beachy and classy together. Best of all, they block the sun. I love these so much the blue pair is a second pair, the first is the charcoal and I love those too.

Amazing company but this product might need some tweaking

Let me just start by saying, I think all of UV skinz products are amazing. These board shorts were great quality but I think you need to size up 1 if you are curvy and I think it would be better if they had the shorts or panty liner in them for those of us not wearing them over a suit but as one. Nevertheless, I LOVE this company!!!

matching

I really like your tank top and active swim shorts for prone paddle boarding and surfing. You could help out by making sure the design has complementary colors.

Love them!

I typically take a large/medium. I ordered a medium as per the chart provided but way too tight. I reordered a bigger size and now am so happy with them and the racer back tank. Finally confident in a bathing suit that supports and covers!
