As female surfers of all levels, we designed this swimsuit for advanced surfers surfing in all types of waves. This women's one-piece swimsuit with long sleeves and a back zip stays firmly in place in large waves.
You surf intensively, it is your favourite sport. During your sessions, you paddle out to the line up, duck dive under the breaking waves if you are on a shortboard, or turtle roll if you are on a longboard. You show commitment in powerful waves of more than one metre. Your swimsuit must stay in place for each of your movements, whatever the strength of the wave. We have designed a range for you that is suited to your intensive practice and your body shape.
We have created the Dani one-piece for women wanting to surf waves of more than one metre without the risk of losing their swimsuit in the shorebreak or when duck diving under breaking waves. Ideal for surfing in temperate water, its cut has been designed to protect against friction from the board and wax. Its feminine seams enhance the silhouette and do not crush the bust. Featuring a long back zip and a pull tab, it is easy to get on and off.
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.
To ensure a perfect fit in the water, it is important to choose the right size while you are dry because once they are in the water, swimsuits become looser. We therefore recommend you buy the correct size. The swimsuit needs to fit snugly against your body in the fitting room, you should feel supported. The elastane contained in certain components used in the design of our swimsuits softens and relaxes in the water.
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.).

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 repeated washing.
