Summer is officially over, but colder weather never stops me from getting out on the water, if I have the chance! Autumn is lovely in the Hamptons and you can paddle right through the winter with the proper SUP clothing. Here are my recommendations for these last warm days, when we’re starting to feel the evening chill and mornings are pretty brisk!
I couldn’t miss one last opportunity to get some ocean SUP action in my Maaji swimsuit. Maaji’s mix and match styles come in so many choices and the suits provide an amazing fit that is both flattering and functional.
BloqUV’s Compression Fabric Tights dry FAST and offer awesome sun protection. It’s so important to apply sunscreen all year long, even when the sun doesn’t feel as hot on your skin. The UV rays are still very dangerous, and BloqUV’s clothing provides 98 percent protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Their long sleeve and zip-tops are perfect for taking on and off when the temperature change — or as our heart rates go up as we start to break a sweat when we paddle!
I’m still in love with 15Love Apparel! The Long-Sleeved Performance Tees and Track Funnel Neck Polo are both great choices for Fall, even if you’re not out paddling. The tees are super soft, with extra long sleeves that you can pull over your hands w/built-in thumb holes!
Coupled with their Slim Leggings or Performance Leggings, 15Love’s clothing is perfect for all activities: yoga, biking, running – or just running around! They are so stylish, and the Performance Legging has a handy pocket in the waistband for my keys or music.
My feet are always the first part of my body to feel the chill while SUPing, so as the days get shorter and my feet get colder I turn to Seal Skins Submerge Waterproof Socks and Stolquist WaterWare’s Water Mocassin. The moc is made of neoprene and rolls up around the foot on all sides – it’s an old Native American design updated for cold weather watersports.
