I'm sure this is the first of many for the season, but what are everyone's thoughts on the best sunblock or sunscreen for both surfing and leisure on the beach?

I used to use headhunter for surfing in San Diego. It worked well. Went on like a darkish brown paste but didnt look like straight zinc oxide or anything but it stayed on for hours through big winter surf....

Last week I spent about 2.5 hours on the beach with my wife and daughter after a surf and the South Carolina sun didn't feel like it was beating down, but i got lobstered. I put some of my daughters sunscreen on my shoulders which were fine, but the rest were toast
