As female surfers of all levels, we designed this swimsuit for advanced surfers surfing in all types of waves. This crop top for wave sports has a wide elastic under the bust for a firm hold and a very open back with ultra-feminine mesh panels.

LEVEL OF PRACTICE
YOU ARE AN ADVANCED SURFER
You surf intensively, it's your favourite sport. During your sessions, you paddle out to the line-up and duck dive if you are on a shortboard or turtle roll on a longboard to get out the back. 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 to suit your intensive practice and your body type.
All those who like to surf waves of more than one metre know how important it is for their swimwear to stay in place! That's why we designed the Isa crop top. Its wide elastic under the bust gives it very good stability whatever the power of the wave and whatever the movement of the body, such as duck dives or turtle rolls. With its ultra-open back, the shoulders are completely free to move, making it easier to paddle.
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.
DRY SIZING AND WET SIZING
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.
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.
