I am a SOCAL fashion guru/stylist and surf lover <3....
I was wondering when you are out on the water, do you prefer to use a hat of some kind. If so, what kind? ( Neoprene surf hats/hoods, etc?????? )
Protecting your skin in crucial and I was wondering what you do to keep the sun away???
What's the best and most comfortable way to wear hat while surfing?

Never worn a hat in the water. I thought only cali kids and Hawaiian's did that sort of thing.

I usually wear a yamakah. Unless it's clean and glassy, then I'll go with the sombrero.

For serious though, if I know it's gonna be bright and sunny, I wear a visor. When I feel like I might lose it(duck diving or a take off) I pull it down around my neck. At the end of the day, my eyes aren't sun burnt.

yes to the hat
surfer doooods are an at risk group for skin cancer. i speak from personal experience which
includes melanoma though its cool cause i benefitted from early detection. i pull my hood on
a little earlier and leave it on a little later. also in summer i use old baseball caps; most of
the time i don't lose it. it is also worth mentioning that beware that sunscreens have
an expiration date after which their effectiveness declines.
if you're already in my boat YOU MUST see your dermatologist - i go 4x p/yr - and get used
to the ICE CAN (freeze off technique). if you don't have insurance STILL GO but find the
owner and try to negotiate the price. most can/will. best to address this issue in a direct

I don't wear a hat I feel like it would be a distraction or worry say if it falls off while on a wave someone may worry about not getting it back. I wear an attached hood in the winter because I have to or my ears and neck would freeze off
