Our design team developed this swimsuit for beginner surfers surfing in broken waves. This girls' two-piece crop top swimsuit has been designed with thin straight straps at the back and classic briefs so that it stays in place in the waves.
Your daughter is starting to surf in very small waves. She stays where she can touch the bottom and is supervised. She wants to have fun in the waves and enjoy new experiences. While learning to surf, she will wipe out in waves that are not at all powerful. We have designed swimwear suitable for discovering the waves and to suit the body shape of young surfer girls for a secure fit in tiny waves.
We designed this Bali two-piece swimsuit so that all young surfer girls can have fun and discover the waves. The crop top with spaghetti straps stays in place in the waves. The swimsuit is easy to pack away into its built-in pocket, so that the young surfer can take it with her anywhere.
At Decathlon, we design swimsuits for young surfers by taking into account their growth. It is for this reason that we systematically associate the child's height with the size, as age is not sufficient to guarantee the correct size. Two 10-year old girls can be of totally different height, weight and shape and have different measurements. We also recommend trying the swimsuits on if possible.
Here is the link between age and height on our swimsuit labels: 4/5 years: from 105 to 114 cm 5/6 years: from 115 to 124 cm 7/8 years: from 125 to 132 cm 8/9 years: from 133 to 142 cm 10/11 years: from 143 to 150 cm 12/13 years: from 151 to 160 cm 14/15 years: from 161 to 169 cm
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.
We design swimsuits that promise to stay in place in the waves. To test them, we use a panel of at least 12 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 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.
Tribord surfing products have now become OLAIAN products, the new Decathlon brand dedicated to surfing, bodyboarding and skimboarding. Gradually, the branding of all our surfing products will be replaced. This is why your product may have a different logo to the one in the picture illustrating the product.
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 has chosen to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme. To get more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
