As female surfers of all levels, we designed these boardshorts for beginner surfers surfing in foam. These short women's boardshorts are designed to be worn over your swimsuit for all water-based activities, they have an elasticated waistband and drawstring, and are water repellent for faster drying.
Designed to stay in place in very small waves (broken waves)

LEVEL OF PRACTICE
You have just started surfing or only surf a few times a year, during your holidays or a surf trip. You stay where you can touch the bottom, in very small waves or broken waves. You surf for the pleasure of being in the water and for the feeling you get from it. During your sessions, you often fall but you fall in waves that are not very powerful. We have designed a wide range of swimsuits for you to suit your occasional practice and your body type.
Ideal for learning to surf in broken waves, stand-up paddle cruising or snorkelling. With their slightly loose fit and low-rise waist, Tini boardshorts suit all body shapes. Its rather short length doesn't visually "cut" the leg and creates a nice figure. Its drawstring guarantees great staying power during use.
We design swimsuits that promise to stay in place in the waves. To test them, we use a panel of female surfers with different body shapes who will follow a test protocol in a pool at our design offices in Hendaye. This protocol aims to reproduce the sensations experienced by surfers when being thrown around by a wave. If this test is conclusive, we go surfing in the sea to test our swimwear in real conditions.
Is the size or style not suitable for you? Would you like to exchange it at your Decathlon store? No problem, just be sure not to cut off the label of the swimsuit in case you want to exchange it.
Based in Hendaye, in South West France, OLAIAN is Decathlon's new surfing and bodyboarding brand. In our offices at the water's edge, we can design a swimsuit and then on the same day test it directly in the sea to check it stays in place in the waves.
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme. For more information, visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
This product has been tested in use in Hendaye and has been subjected to numerous laboratory tests to guarantee the quality of use for which it was designed: tests on the fabric's elasticity and strength, colour fastness when rubbed, washed, exposed to sea water, chlorinated water and light, and tests on the product's overall performance after several washes.
