A Surfing Rash Guard Was Invented in Australia - Today a Rash Guard is a Piece of Sun Clothing
The surfing rash guard was introduced in for the first time Australia and they were used for various water sports such as surfing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving etc. Rash guards were used because they can offer a very good protection against the direct sunlight, they blocks 98 % of the ultraviolet radiation, they are comfortable and they can protect you against jellyfish stings.
Any rash guard is made from spandex and polyester and sometimes spandex and nylon. Being made from these materials, it will offer you flexibility, warmth, protection against the UV radiation and against jellyfish. Rash guards are used when the temperature is too high for a wetsuit. Surfers use them sometimes for protection against the exposure to ultraviolet and most often, they use rash guards to protect them from chafing. While the surfboard is waxed, it retains sand from the beach and this could hurt the surfer's chest when he paddles.
Kids these days wear a surfing rash guard as sun protective clothing and in order to protect their delicate skin from jellyfish stings which can lead to serious diseases which could develop even more complications.
There are two types of available rash guards for children: the kids long sleeve rash guards and the short sleeve rash guard. Both of these suites have a thin sponge layer on the inside which will keep your child warm, while having a sun blocking fabric on the outside. Your kid will love the rash guard and you will love it as well. If your child is allergic to one of the sunscreen's chemical components or if you just think that the sun lotion isn't enough to protect your child's sensitive skin, then you should buy a rash guard. This will help you protect your child from skin diseases caused by jellyfish stings and from skin cancer caused by sunburns.
There aren't usually a lot of patterns available for a good surfing rash guard, they tend to come in one color, usually darker colors like black or dark blue and they have a thin light color strap on both sides from head to toe. It's recommended by medical professionals that you have two rash guards available for your child every time: one that your child wears and gets wet in it and another dry one. If you don't want to buy two rash guards, then it's recommended to change your child's swimwear as soon as you leave from the pool or beach; otherwise he or she can get serious diseases from the bacteria that can be formed on a wet rash guard or swimsuit.
