Which Red Original Changing Robe Is The Best Surf Changing Robe?

Posted by Lydia Burdett

Keen surfers will be well aware that managing the transition from the waves to dry land can be a tricky one. Your body temperature can drop quickly once you’re out of the water and hanging around in your wetsuit is both chilly and uncomfortable. Finding fuss-free ways to change into dry gear and get on with the day is therefore vital.

This is where a surf changing robe can come into play. Designed to keep you warm and dry and provide privacy while changing, these clever garments have taken the shore by storm over the past couple of years. However, with so many different brands and options to choose from, knowing which is the best might be trickier than you think. To help you find the best surf changing robe for your needs, we’ve summarised exactly what makes Red Original changing robes great for surfing in this article.


Microfibre Change Robe

A good surf changing robe is first and foremost one that helps you to dry off as quickly as possible. For this to be possible, it needs to be made from a highly absorbent material like our Quick Dry Microfibre Change Robe. 

Available for men and women, the Red Original Microfibre Change Robe option is the best surf changing robe for anybody who wants to change without any fuss. The overhead design simply pops over the head and instantly absorbs up to 4 times its weight in water, all while providing plenty of space for you to slip back into your dry clothes. Once you’re back in your everyday fare, the robe itself will dry off quickly after use meaning you don’t need to worry about lugging around damp and heavy kit for hours on end after your surf.

Towelling Change Robe

Similar in design but with some key technical differences is the Red Original Towelling Change Robe. This poncho-style robe is another great option if you’re looking for a surf changing robe that prioritises convenience and comes with the added benefit of the more luxurious and cosy feel of towelling fabric. After all, taking care of your skin is important when you spend lots of time in the sea and the 430gsm premium cotton used to create this surf changing robe can help you do exactly that. Plus, the handy deep pockets and drawcord hood offer extra warmth and comfort when you really need it.  


Pro Change Robe EVO 

If you’re surfing through the winter or first thing in the morning, you might want a changing robe that provides a little extra insulation. In this case, the Red Original Pro Change Robe EVO is the best surf change robe for you. The exterior of the robe is 100% waterproof and breathable so you need not worry about changing in unpredictable or tough conditions, while the inner layer offers supreme comfort and quick-drying properties thanks to its super soft and moisture-wicking fleece lining. Choose from a long-sleeved or short-sleeved cut in a range of colours for a surf changing robe tailored to your personal preferences and requirements.
