Carefully designed to stay in place in waves of less than one metre.
You are an intermediate surfer.
You’re a regular surfer. During your sessions, you paddle out to the line-up, duck dive under the breaking waves if you are on a shortboard, or turtle roll if you are on a longboard. You often fall and are used to being shaken around underwater. Your swimsuit has to meet the requirements of your activity and stay in place for each of your movements. Our range is suited to regular activity.
If you are an intermediate surfer, progression requires constant concentration in the waves. You can't be wasting your time constantly adjusting your suit! That's why we designed these Vanina shorts. Combining the coverage of shorts and the femininity of a brief, this swimsuit bottom has proven its ability to hold in waves of less than one meter.
Stays in place in the waves: Testing
Our swimsuits promise to stay in place in the waves. Tested in our offices in Hendaye, France. Our test protocol reproduces real-life surfing conditions. If this test is conclusive, we test our products directly in the sea.
Dry vs wet sizing
Choose the right size while you are dry—once in the water, swimsuits become looser. How to choose the right size The swimsuit needs to fit snugly against your body in the fitting room and make you feel supported. The spandex used in the design of our swimsuits softens and relaxes in the water.
Is the size or style not suitable for you? You can exchange it at your local Decathlon store. Just be sure not to cutt off the label of the swimsuit.
