During a day at the beach or on the water, it is important to protect yourself against the UV radiation of the sun. At Telstar Surf you can find sunscreen of the surf brand Island Tribe. This sunscreen is waterproof and eco-friendly. This means that traces of the sunburn will not harm the reef or the aquatic life!
What should I look for when buying sunscreen?
First of all, as a surfer, it is important that the sunscreen you choose is waterproof. Always check the number of hours of protection the sunscreen provides. This differs per brand. It's a shame if you have to interrupt your surfing session because you get sunburned.
Finally, it's a plus to check if the sunscreen or traces of it are eco-friendly, as some brands are bad for the reef or the environment. If this is an important consideration for you, it's good to know that Island Tribe takes it into account!
