Rash Guards Galore

The Beach Depot online store is not yet open. Please stay tuned for our custom made rash guards.

The Beach Depot women's and men's rash guards are hand crafted for maximum sun protection and comfort. The athletic fabric cuts come in a variety of styles and are designed to compliment your figure. Each guard has a minimum SPF rating of 170+. So they keep sunburns away and protect your skin from rashes caused by salt, sand, and winds.

It is never too late to start protecting your skin. Especially when we are young, a nice tan seems much more important than worrying about getting skin cancer, or pre-mature sun damage. Let’s face it, we all enjoy going to the beach or pool and laying out to get some color. Unfortunately, this is hazardous to our health. It is a goal at Beach Depot to increase sun protection awareness for people of all ages through the use of rash guard swim shirts, sunblock, and sunglasses.

If young people today became more aware of the fact long term sun exposure will cause pre-mature sun damage like it has done to many. The issue will only become more important in the future. Skin cancer incidents among people under 30 is becoming a much more common occurrence due to a stronger sun and increasing UV levels across the globe.  It will be essential that sun protection become a part of everybody’s routine when planning outdoor activities. Increasing awareness now will definitely pay off later with a goal of reducing skin cancer rates over time.

The fact is that sun protection is quite simple. Surfing rash guard shirts, swim shirts, and SPF sun shirts are affordable and effective. Sunscreens and sunglasses can very easily become a part of a person’s daily routine just like brushing or flossing. Humans adapt to change.

FAQs About Rash Guards

Can I wear your rash guard shirts in the ocean?

Yes! Our swim shirts are designed to withstand repeated use in salt water.  We recommend that you rinse your rash guard with fresh water after each use to ensure maximum durability.  Ocean water can break down lycra fabric if not rinsed after each use with fresh water.  Do not dry in direct sunlight (color will fade).

Do your swim shirts have an SPF rating?  Do I still need to wear sunscreen?

Beach Depot rash guards have been tested and given an SPF 170+ rating.  What this means is that your skin is getting complete sun protection from our rash guard and will not get a sun burn.  Of course, the areas of you body not covered by the swim shirt still need protection.  We highly advise using rash guard shirts in coordination with sunscreen, sunglasses, and sun hats to protect other areas of your body and face.

Are your rash guards suitable for MMA and Grappling?

Yes, our durable rash guard shirts are designed to be abused and are excellent for jiu-jitsu, mma, grappling, wrestling, and other athletic purposes.  We sell rash guards as mma shirts to many athletic clubs and fight clubs around the globe.
