If you are lucky enough to be going surfing in a warm water destination, rash vests are your friend – they shield you from the sun, protect your modesty in wipeouts (my bikini once even came off while it was underneath my rash vest – go figure) and obviously, stop you getting a rash from rub.

For too long, rash vests have followed a familiar-yet-tired formula: one colour, short sleeved, with a big logo in the middle of the chest. Thankfully, things are starting to change, and there are now a decent selection of beautiful rash vests you actually want to wear. Here are three lovely ones…
