Caps & beanies

Buy a surfcap & beanie at Telstar Surf

Are you an athletic kite- or windsurfer who keeps going until the freezing point? Then you're bound to have had a cold head at some point.... Read below why a surf cap or beanie is ideal for you and what to look for when buying a surf cap.

Protecting yourself from the cold with a surf cap

To prevent you from getting cold on the water, there are some good solutions that have been devised. First of all, we recommend that you buy a warm wetsuit. A good wetsuit ensures that you are less likely to get cold. If you still feel cold despite your wetsuit, then a surf cap can help you. Most of the cold is lost through your head. With a surf cap or surf beanie you will experience that you get cold less quickly or that you no longer suffer from a cold head. This allows you to enjoy kitesurfing or windsurfing in the late season with cold temperatures.

What should you look for when buying a surfcap or beanie?

  • Type: There are two types of surf caps: We offer a surf beanie and surf hood. A surf hood is purely focused on protecting your head. Everything is covered except the nose, mouth and eyes. Some surf hoods have an extra flap in the neck to put under the wetsuit. This allows little or no water to enter the wetsuit for those extremely cold days. Also, some surfhoods have a protection above the eyes so the water doesn't run into your face directly. 
    A beanie is a hat made of neoprene. Beanies are perfect for during colder weather. Beanies keep your head nice and warm and are very comfortable compared to surfhoods.
  • Thickness: the thickness of a beanie or hood depends on what weather conditions you plan to go on the water in. A thicker surf hood or surf beanie will provide more protection from the cold. Are you really going in the winter on the water where the temperature is close to freezing? Then a surf hood is better suited.
  • Size: the size of your surf cap plays an important role. A too big or too small surf cap; surf hood or beanie can be uncomfortable. With a too small surf cap you will experience headaches after a while. On the other hand, with a surf cap that is too large, you will not experience optimal warmth during your surf session.

Advice on buying a surfcap or beanie

Are you still cold with all the above gear? Then there are more options to dress warmly. Besides a warm wetsuit and a surf cap, a neoprene jacket or windstopper can also be ideal for you! A neoprene jacket or windstopper is worn over your wetsuit. The windstopper keeps the cold wind away from your wetsuit, so you will experience more warmth. In addition, it is also wise to purchase any surf gloves and/or surf shoes.

For the right size cap or beanie, we recommend you to try on the beanie or cap first. Come along in our surf shop and find out which surf cap is suitable for you. Don't live around the corner, but do you have a question for us? Please contact us by phone or send us an e-mail.
