A great topic on Skin Cancer from Dodge:
Here are some options for summer gear that will protect you from the elements whilst out on the yak:
- Full length rashie, available from most surf shops these days.
- Adidas 'climate' runners pants. Thin, breathable. Dry practically instantly.
- Rock walkers
- A Gatesy(tm) sheik hat, that can be velcro'd around to hide your face nearly completely
- A bit of sunscreen on the face, ankles and tops of your hands, and you're good to go.
