Gear | Crossover Activewear for SUP Women
Ladies, we can now rejoice over the ability to move seamlessly between land and water workouts. The crossover activewear movement continues to fulfill the demand with functional and stylish pieces from both emerging brands and some of our old favorites. The active-outdoor female is no longer limited to the boring basics—we now have bountiful options that allow fashion and function to amalgamate—and it's about time. With crossover activewear offering quick-drying and moisture-wicking materials in cool colors and funky patterns, we decided to roundup a few options that are great for layering this spring season, and throughout the year. —Shari Coble
Head to Sea Hoodie
$96, Graced by Grit
Designed specifically for paddlers, Graced by Grit's form-fitting Head to Sea Hoodie is lightweight, sweat-wicking and quick-drying. Plus, its UPF 50+ material offers great protection from the sun's damaging rays. In addition, both the reflective zipper and logos help you be seen by others, whether on land or in the water. Thumbholes keep sleeves from sliding mid-stroke, while pockets on each arm offer ample storage. Lastly, its flatlock seams eliminate the potential for chaffing, which is a huge plus for any paddler.
Perfect for layering over a sports bra or swimsuit top, the Lattice Top by PrAna offers breathability and comfort regardless of whether your workout is water-based or at the gym. A stylish mesh insert across the back allows ventilation, while the quick-drying, moisture-wicking fabric provides stretchability and the freedom to move—whether you're charging on your SUP or finding your center in yoga.

$58, Mahiku Activewear
Made by SUP women for SUP women, Mahiku Activewear's line of water-friendly apparel now includes sport bras that are reversible and keep everything up top in place.
