The Rapid Dry longsleeve top has a standard neck design and is cut in a stylish loose T-shirt design making it comfortable for in and on the water as well as for everyday casual use around the water.

Rapid Dry does not ‘cling’ to your body and impede movement like other watersports garments do. Rapid Dry looks great when worn wet or dry.

Unisex, 4-way stretch design for a wide range of fits from XXS to 5XL.

About Rapid Dry

Sharkskin Rapid Dry is a lightweight, breathable, fast drying fabric which is warmer and more insulative than cotton and nylon / lycra / spandex synthetic fabrics both when wet and when dry.

The stylish loose fit T-shirt design is super comfortable when worn by itself for all watersports but can also be worn layered over other Sharkskin tops for extra insulation and sun protection when needed.

Rapid Dry is ideal for paddle watersports, board watersports, sailing and many other watersports including white water rafting, multisport and adventure sports.

Rapid Dry Features

  • Rapid Dry is ‘infused’ and then ‘heat set’ with a durable water repellent (DWR) treatment. This method is more effective at shedding water and lasts much longer than traditional treatments.
  • 3-D ‘rib-knit’ fabric construction for superior insulation properties.
  • Durable fabric resists deterioration in UV, saltwater and chlorine so the garment will last longer.
  • 4-way stretch ensures garments are non-restrictive allowing a full range of movement.
  • Breathable fabric to allow body temperature regulation.
  • Non-chaffing seams for comfort during active watersports.
  • Odour resistant properties so the garment can be worn for long periods of time.
  • Hi-vis and non-fading colours available for safety on the water.
  • SPF50+ for sun protection to avoid skin damage and melanoma.

Sizing Guide

Rapid Dry is a unisex fit - please refer to the Mens & Rapid Dry size chart for Rapid Dry sizing.

Rapid Dry can be sized a number of ways to suit your preference or type of use. If you choose your regular shirt size, Rapid Dry will be form fitting to slightly loose fit.

If you prefer a loose fit similar to a loose fitting T-shirt then we recommend you chose a size up from your regular shirt size.

If you would prefer a body fitting or snug fit (like a fitted lycra rash shirt for example) then we would recommend that you select a size down from your regular shirt size. 

For details see our size chart.

Awesome light and cool even after paddling over 30 klm on-a fairly hot day really pleased with top would recommend to any kayakers


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

I've found the Sharkskin range to be perfect for staying comfortable in even the worst conditions -whether out training for Coast to Coast, an AR race or simply a big mission it is brilliant both as an outer layer and as the insulating layer under a dry top. The most impressive thing is how warm it remains when wet and it's become a stable part of my kayaking equipment.

I'm lucky enough in life to spend nearly 200 days a year out on the water in a kayak. Whether it’s throwing myself over a 10m waterfall, paddling a 60 kilometre stretch of coastline, or terrorising the local fish population, it would be fair to say that I spend a lot of time wet. When out on the water, I need clothing that will keep me warm, comfortable, and protected from our harsh NZ sun. Sharkskin ticks all of these boxes and I have found their product range to be an amazing asset to my kayaking. Long gone are the days of layering up with skunkyold thermals, as I would now consider my Sharkskin’s my ‘go to’ items. My choice literally comes down to what the weather is like on the day: a Rapid Dry top for hot days out on the ocean, a Chesty Vest for a high-intensity training session, or a Long Sleeve Shirt for winter whitewater. It’s all awesome stuff and as I say to my mates “if I can’t break it, then no-one can.”

Stand Up Paddling has you above the water, exposed to the elements and wind chill is always major factor. With Sharkskins products being 100% windproof I find the range boasts extremely comfortable garments that have the same warmth as a full wetsuit, but are more lightweight and offer increased flexibility, a must when competing in National and International Stand Up Paddle events. I choose Sharkskin for this reason and it never gets left behind when packing for my next surf.

Fits well if even a little larger that I normally wear. Stops most of the wing and is no where near as clingy as the usual rashies.
Great colour, dries very quickly and my longboard surfing buddy now wants one, or two.

My husband usually takes an L size in shirts. I ordered the Sharkskin rashie in L but he feels like it is too tight on his lower arms and chest and looks like it is too tight around his middle. He is not obese but the shirt hugged him quite firmly around his middle. It also seemed too short. Have ordered a larger size. The smaller size will be passed on to a grandson.

Great size, and fit. Feels like a quality item and works well on the jetski.
