Vaikobi UV shorts

Vaikobi’s UV collection is designed to protect paddlers, sailors and ocean athletes from harmful sun damage while maximising your time on the water. Our range of rashies, short sleeve tees, paddling shorts, leggings and sun shirts will keep the rays off skin. All of our products have stood the test of the harsh Australian sun to ensure the highest level of protection for wearers.

High Coverage Clothing 

Our UV collection is designed to cover the most skin possible, without restricting performance. Vaikobi UV rashies are perfect for almost every watersport you can think of during Summer, both on the surface and under the water. Combine our lightweight paddle pants, leggings, long sleeve tees, and long sleeve rash shirts for maximum coverage.  

Shorts for Summer

Our paddle shorts are also extremely popular and have padded seats for extra comfort while downwind paddling, surf skiing, canoeing and kayaking. Both women’s and men’s cuts are available. 

UV collection for Youth 

Vaikobi UV long sleeve rashies are also available in youth sizing to protect the whole family come Summer. They have an ergonomic cut and construction to suit smaller growing bodies, and are quick dry to prevent discomfort. Pick out the best gear for your child by following our guidelines
