Swimsuit designed to stay in place in very small waves
You have just started surfing or only surf a few times a year. You stay where you can touch the bottom, in tiny waves or broken waves. You surf for the pleasure of being in the water and for the feeling you get from it. During your sessions, you often fall but you fall in waves that are not very powerful. Our design team has developed a wide range of swimwear suited to occasional surfing.
The Taloo two-piece swimsuit is designed for young beginner surfers. This swimsuit is a summer essential for surfing while having fun. Its adjustable neck lets it adapt to fit the surfer's body shape. The briefs have a regular cut and stay in place in the waves.
STAYS IN PLACE IN THE WAVES: THE TEST
We design swimsuits that promise to stay in place in the waves. To test them, we use a panel of at least 12 female surfers with different body shapes who will follow a test protocol in a pool at our design offices in Hendaye. This protocol aims to reproduce the sensations experienced by surfers when being thrown around by a wave. If this test is conclusive, we go surfing in the sea to test our swimwear in real conditions.
GIRLS' SWIMSUIT SIZES
At Decathlon, we design swimsuits for young surfers by taking into account their growth. It is for this reason that we systematically associate the child's height with the size, as age is not sufficient to guarantee the correct size. Two 10-year-old girls can be of totally different height, weight and shape and have different measurements. We also recommend trying the swimsuits on in store if possible
OUR GIRLS' SWIMSUIT SIZES
Here is the link between age and height on our swimsuit labels:
4 years: from 3’3” to 3’5”
5 years: from 3’5” to 3’7”
6 years: from 3’8” to 4’1”
8 years: from 4’1” to 4’3”
10 years: from 4’4” to 4’7”
12 years: from 4’8” to 4’11”
14 years: from 4’12” to 5’3”
16 years: from 5’3” to 5’7”
DRY SIZING AND WET SIZING
To ensure a perfect fit in the water, it is important to choose the right size while you are dry because once they are in the water, swimsuits become looser. We therefore recommend you buy the correct size. The swimsuit needs to fit snugly against your body in the fitting room, you should feel supported. The spandex contained in certain components used in the design of our swimsuits softens and relaxes in the water.
DO YOU WANT TO EXCHANGE YOUR SWIMSUIT?
Is the size or style not suitable for you? Would you like to exchange it at your Decathlon store? No problem, just be sure not to cut the tag off the swimsuit in case you want to exchange it.
OLAIAN, DECATHLON'S SURF BRAND
Based in Hendaye, in South West France, OLAIAN is Decathlon's new surfing and bodyboarding brand. In our offices at the water's edge, we can design a swimsuit and then on the same day test it directly in the sea to check that it stays in place in the waves.
WHAT IS THE OLAIAN BRAND?
Tribord surfing products have now become OLAIAN products, the new Decathlon brand dedicated to surfing, bodyboarding, and skimboarding. Gradually, the branding of all our surfing products will be replaced. This is why your product may have a different logo than the one in the picture illustrating the product.
Score to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and with various indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.).
Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme.
