Designed to stay in place in very small waves (broken waves)
YOU ARE A BEGINNER SURFER
You have just started surfing or only surf a few times a year, during your holidays or a surfing trip. You stay where you can touch the bottom, in very small 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. We have designed a wide range of swimsuits for you to suit your occasional practice and your body type.
Ideal for learning to surf in broken waves, stand up paddle cruising, or snorkelling. With their slightly loose fit and low-rise waist, Tana boardshorts suit all body shapes. Their rather short length doesn't visually "cut" the leg and creates a nice figure. Their drawstring guarantees great staying power during use.
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 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.
DO YOU WANT TO EXCHANGE YOUR BOARDSHORTS?
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.
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.
