I always use sunscreen unless wearing a full suit. Stupid not to, I've known people die from skin cancer in their 30s, and it was not pleasant to watch. I figure a few minutes a day is worth it. That being said finding a good one at a reasonable price is hard. Banana boat used to make a "surf" one that was quite good but thick as hell. Some burn the eyes with sweat and water so it's hard to find a good one with the right balance of protection and comfort. The spray ones are crap.

I use Waterman's sunscreen. It's pretty expensive (about $20-25 for 8 oz depending on where you get it) but lasts a long time in the water and dries clean, no oily residue. I wear it fishing and it stays even if I'm sweating like a pig.

btw, I did the survey. I let you know I can't believe I had to write in "fishing." Come on man, tighten up!

Believe it or not, this stuff is good... stays on, does NOT drip into your eyes and sting, and is cheap, especially if you clip the coupon and send it in...

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this advice now."

Hey Doug Rosen your sales manager called, he wants better sales out of you or your territory will shrink...get lost dude.
It's really hard to put on your back by yourself. I've gotten the spray kinds but they dont seem to last long, and i always miss spots with them.
