I would recommend the Sharkskin long sleeve top !!
For spring white water creeking and scouting missions the Sharkskin long sleeve top has become my absolute go to. It's comfort and warmth has made the need for multiple smelly poly pros redundant. In an early spring descent of the snow-fed Central Otago Nevis river I was more than comfortable wearing only my Sharkskin under my dry top. Normally this type of descent would demand at least 3 poly pros which restricts your range of motion in this class V kayaking environment. I would recommend the Sharkskin long sleeve top to any kayaker who is keen to have one do it all garment under their dry top. It is warm on even the coldest days and reduces the need for multiple layers.
On top of Sharkskin's Chillproof range of paddling products !!
The thing I love about all the Sharkskin products is that they take time to make the garment the best it can be for the paddler. On top of Sharkskin's Chillproof range of paddling products, now comes the Performance Pro compression top. I use the Sharkskin compression top for not only racing but for training as well. The good thing with this top it is that I never get too hot or cold.
Sharkskin's products being 100% windproof
Stand Up Paddling has you above the water, exposed to the elements and wind chill is always major factor. With Sharkskin's products being 100% windproof I find the range boasts extremely comfortable garments that have the same warmth as a full wetsuit, but are more lightweight and offer increased flexibility, a must when competing in national and international Stand Up Paddle events.I choose Sharkskin for this reason and it never gets left behind when packing for my next surf.
Sharkskin paddling pants and tops kept us warm in the cold water without making us over heat in the warm air
We were paddling in 5 degree water with a air temp of 26 degrees and the Sharkskin paddling pants and tops kept us warm in the cold water without making us over heat in the warm air. While competing you need a product that can adapt to different weather conditions without compromising your performance and sharkskin have found the perfect balance! Sharkskin paddling pants offer superior comfort without the chaffing which is extremely important while training and racing for long periods of time.

On cold mornings I grab my Sharkskin bag and get my Chillproof pogies, socks, paddling pants, beanie and longsleeve top and that keeps me warm for a great training session. The colder it is the more comfortable I become.
