I get cold really fast and Sharkskin keeps me warm and comfortable for my Winter SUP and Outrigger paddling making it possible to paddle long downwinds or distance paddling without worrying about getting cold. The nice thing is that I do not overheat when I’m pushing myself hard!

I love the Sharkskin kit. It performed brilliantly over the two regattas we’ve used it for this summer. If you look at photos of the 12 Foot Skiff Interdominions you’ll notice that we were the only guys warm enough to sail in shorts! We layered Performance Wear tops and shorts over the Chillproof garments; theContinue Reading

I’ve noticed a marked difference in how close I can approach certain marine life underwater while wearing the HECS suit – a worthwhile advantage for any cameraman.

I have been using the Sharkskin Rapid Dry top a lot both on and off the water and I’m loving it. It’s perfect for the slightly colder conditions too as it’s like a splash guard when it is drizzling but you don’t overheat.

Our Sharkskin Rapid Dry tops were exactly what we needed for raft racing. Powering through rapids they repelled the water to keep us warm while competing, while off the water they dried so quick they became a great casual top for us to wear on the podium. The 50+ UPF also helped with the harsh NZ sun. ThanksContinue Reading

On top of Sharkskin’s Chillproof range of paddling products, now comes the Performance Pro compression top. I use the Sharkskin compression top for not only racing but for trainingContinue Reading

We train on either our skis or kayaks everyday and have experienced extreme weather conditions.

Sharkskin is by far the best paddling gear I’ve ever worn on the water! The fleece lined paddling pants are awesome over winter, and the foot straps mean that if I come off my board during racing or downwinders, the pants remain in place. The rapid dry top with high vis sleeves is a year-roundContinue Reading

Over the last few months I’ve taken a huge liking to my Sharkskin Long sleeve top. For spring white water creeking / scouting missions the Sharkskin long sleeve top has become my absolute go to. It’s comfort and warmth has made the need for multiple smelly poly pro’s redundant. In an early spring descent ofContinue Reading

We need a garment that gives us some insulation and dries quickly when wet. The Sharkskin Rapid Dry product is perfect – not as cold as lycra or spandex garments and dries super fast keeping us warm when training or competing.
