Surf Sunscreen

« on: February 24 2009 12:02:00 »

Just wondering if anyone can recommend a sunscreen for surfing.  I have used regular brands (Coppertone, H Tropic, etc) that claim to be waterproof but they don't hold up in the water.  Let me know if anybody has a preference and where I can find some in Canada.  Thanks.

I use banana boat kid stuff factor 50, works well, doesn't go into my eyes.

down here in Costa Rica I use coppertone sport.  works for me.  One of the girls I surf with swears by shiseido... but thats pretty expensive stuff.  Another one uses Bullfrog brand.  I dont like it bc its so thick.
