Headhunter Sunscreen: "Is Headhunter Sunscreen the Best Sunscreen for Surfers?"

It's awesome that our industry has developed sunscreen specifically for surfing, enter Headhunter Sunscreen. You might wonder why it matters, well you can trust me when I say it does. Ever slipped on a take off because your wax was slippery from the sunscreen that you applied to your chest before you paddled out? Ever had a perfectly timed duck dive only to end up on the other side with your eyes stinging from the sunscreen that has washed into them? Ever been burned during a surf session because your sunscreen only lasted two hours? That's why it matters...and that's why I wonder, is Headhunter Sunscreen the Best Sunscreen for Surfers?

I have personally used Headhunter Sunscreen for a long time and my experience is nothing but positive. The stuff works exactly as you would hope. I have had problems with other sunscreen in the past, with it getting into my wax, into my eyes and with it getting everywhere else, but my skin, as it seemed, because I would end up burned... Then I tried Headhunter Sunscreen and all of these problems were a thing of the past. I have found that Headhunter will last as long as I do. Usually after about four hours of surfing I need a water/food/rest break and reapply. If I take that approach and paddle back out, I find that Headhunter Sunscreen stays put and I don't get burned, so it works perfectly. Below I'll review a few of my favorite products in the Headhunter Sunscreen line.

Obviously, the standard Headhunter Core Sunscreen is where we need to start, it comes in SPF 30, SPF 50 and both Clear or Light Brown tints. It is the "Core Series" that is Headhunter Sunscreens' original "Surfscreen", which is the best for surfing. The thought process behind the Light Brown tint is that you can see where you put it on so you don't miss anything. I like the Light Brown tint unless I have light colored board shorts on, as sometimes the Light Brown tint will inadvertently get on them and it's a pain to get out. It's great that Headhunter Sunscreen won't come off, but not so much when it's the Light Brown on your favorite pair of board shorts. It should be noted that we carry the Headhunter Sunscreen Core Series SPF 30 Clear in a 32 oz. Jug, which is the most cost effective way to get a ton of Headhunter Sunscreen.

Headhunter Sunscreen also includes, Warpaint, Facestick and Lip Balm as a part of their line. I absolutely LOVE the Headhunter Warpaint, for me it's a must when I know there's a good swell and I'm going to be in the water all day. Again available in Clear or Light Brown, Headhunter Warpaint is similar to Zinc Oxide, but with added sun protection. It's perfect for your face and for me, from time to time I'll use it on my shoulders and upper back if I know I'm going to be out from dawn till dusk. I have also used the Facestick and Lip Balm, but I personally prefer to use Headhunter Warpaint in those areas instead. You should try them all and form your own opinion and that doesn't come from a sales mans point of view, that's from a surfers point of view, so that you find what works best for you while you're surfing, because at the end of the day, that's what it's all about.

There is one more Headhunter Sunscreen product that I absolutely recommend and it's not Sunscreen, it's their Rash Guard Formula! The stuff is fantastic if you're going on a long trip where you'll be surfing every day for days on end. I'm not exaggerating, I've had both pit and inner leg rash ruin surf trips before. When you're surfing a lot a rash like that can become so painful you can't surf. After learning my lesson, I gave the Headhunter Rashguard Formula a go and I was blown away. Not only does it help in between sessions clear up any irritation, but used proactively it will keep you from getting a rash in the first place. It's funny because Headhunter took the Rashguard Formula out of their line for a season and tons of surfers must have complained, because they brought it back, to that I say thank God, the stuff is a life saver.
