YOU ARE A BEGINNER SURFER
You are learning to surf or surf only a few times a year, during your holidays or a surf trip. You stay where you can touch the bottom, in tiny 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 swimwear for you, to suit your occasional practice and your body shape
These boardshorts are designed for young surfers wanting to have fun and discover the waves. With their belted waistband, they stay in place in the waves and easily adapt to fit all body shapes. They are intended to be worn over a swimsuit.
STAYS IN PLACE IN THE WAVES: THE TEST
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.
GIRLS' SWIMSUIT SIZES
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.
OUR GIRLS' SWIMSUIT SIZES
Here is the link between age and height on our swimsuit labels:
4 years: from 98 to 104 cm
5 years: from 105 to 114 cm
6 years: from 115 to 124 cm
8 years: from 125 to 132 cm
10 years: from 133 to 142 cm
12 years: from 143 to 150 cm
14 years: from 151 to 160 cm
16 years: from 161 to 169 cm
DO YOU WANT TO EXCHANGE YOUR SWIMSUIT?
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.
OLAIAN, DECATHLON'S SURF BRAND
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.
WHAT IS OLAIAN?
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. Therefore, your product may display a different logo to that shown in the image of the product.
