POLYPROPYLENE - read my words!

Polypro also shape up the body...!
I live in Sweden. It is a country where one third of the land area is above the Artic Circle. That means that it is pretty cold most of the time. Still I windsurf everyday when it is no ice on the sea. (And there is enough wind off course). We never sail without a wetsuit, even in the summer. For me the most important part of the windsurfing equipment is the wetsuit (or wetsuits to be correct). Until now. By a coincidence I passed Quiksilver´s outlet in Melbourne in January, and I happened to pick a black rash guard. What I did not know was that the material wasn’t Lycra. It was Polypropylene. Probably not a blockbuster in Australia because it is extremely hot. And when I tried it at home under my Neil Pryde Elite I almost was boiling even when I was surfing in water with ice blocks. A week ago I also bought a pair of Polypro shorts from Billabong. They where not is thick as the Quik-rash but still quite warm. Yesterday I sailed for 3 hours and when I went in it was snowing a lot. I guess most people would consider it a cold day. But with polopro, nothing is cold anymore. My advice; Polypro are very very very good products! 
Extremely much better than a neoprene rash vest and another universe compared with a Lycra vest.


  1. Do you think that a polypropylene rashie will be warmer than a 1mm neoprene rashie under a wetsuit?

  2. Yes it does, but it need to be the thicker PP-rash.
    Before I bought my Quik-PP, I used a NPX 1,5 mm Neoprene.

  3. Hello,
    Do you have the same point of view about PP and wetsuit after several seasons? I am new to Goteborg area and would like to find a cheap way compared to hot wetsuit, and I am interested by your conclusions.
    Thank you for this blog and for your answer.

  6. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks! jiofi mifi
