How To Use

Enhance your sun protection routine with the Surf Band Pro, an ideal device for reapplying sunscreen during ocean adventures and sports activities.

When you're in the ocean, we recommend applying sunscreen after allowing your face to dry off for a few minutes. Take a moment to let your hands dry off a bit as well, even if they may be slightly waterlogged and wrinkled. This ensures better adherence and effectiveness of the sunscreen, providing you with optimal protection.

Watch the quick video below:
  1. Take off the back-cap and ensure the reservoir is empty.

  2. Fill the reservoir with your preferred sunscreen, such as lotion, liquid, gel, or zinc, filling it up to the brim. (or mosquito repellent & sanitizers)

  3. Securely place the back-cap back on, being mindful of the nozzle's direction. Avoid pressing down on the center of the cap; instead, push it along the reservoir's rims or sides to prevent any squirt-outs.

  4. Strap the band onto your wrist with the nozzle FACING AWAY from you.

  5. Insert the strap through the buckle and adjust it to a comfortable tightness.

  6. With the nozzle facing downwards, position your hand underneath the device.

  7. Push down on the face of the cap to release the sunscreen solution into your palm. Note that after approximately 10 applications, you may need to gently "shake your wrist" to facilitate the flow of the lotion towards the exit point.

  8. Remember to wash out any remaining sunscreen from your Surf Band Pro when not in use or when changing to a different solution.

By following these straightforward steps, you can effortlessly apply sunscreen ( or any protective solution) using the Surf Band Pro and ensure its optimal functionality. Enjoy your outdoor activities with the added convenience and protection provided by our innovative wearable device.




Wrist size

While adjusting the band for different wrist sizes, simply slide the velcro through the bezel. Here is a general rule of thumb for sizing:




We all need some sun exposure from time to time. When our skin is exposed to the sun, our bodies naturally produce vitamin D, which helps absorb calcium for healthier and stronger bones.

But, just as we all need exposure to the sun, we all need protection too. The lighter your natural skin color is, the less melanin it has to absorb ultraviolet (UV) rays and protect itself. Even if you have darker skin, everyone needs protection from UV rays because tanning or burning will inevitably lead to skin damage.

Understanding Different Skin Types and Sun Protection Needs for Outdoor Sports

When it comes to enjoying outdoor sports like surfing, running, cycling, and beach volleyball, protecting your skin from harmful UV radiation is crucial. With the Surf Band Pro, you can conveniently reapply sunscreen while on the move, ensuring continuous protection throughout your activities.

1. Skin Types and Sun Protection

Understanding your skin type is essential for selecting the right sunscreen and maintaining adequate protection during outdoor sports. Whether you have fair skin that burns easily or darker skin that tans more readily, sunscreen application is necessary for everyone to prevent sun damage and reduce the risk of skin cancer.

2. Sun Protection During Action Sports

- Challenges: Prolonged sun exposure, reflective surface of water intensifies UV radiation.
- Recommendations: Apply sunscreen before hitting the waves and use the Surf Band Pro to conveniently reapply while out on the water. Remember to let your hand and face dry for two minutes before reapplying for optimal effectiveness.

- Challenges: Continuous movement increases sweat and decreases sunscreen effectiveness.
- Recommendations: Use sweat-resistant sunscreen and reapply with the Surf Band Pro during breaks in your run. Ensure thorough coverage on exposed areas to maintain protection.

- Challenges: Exposed skin, especially on face and arms, susceptible to UV damage.
- Recommendations: Reapply sunscreen using the Surf Band Pro during rest stops or when pausing during your ride. Don't forget to cover areas that may have been missed initially, such as the back of your neck and ears.

Beach Volleyball
- Challenges: Intense sun exposure, sand reflects UV radiation, frequent movement and sweating.
- Recommendations: Utilize the Surf Band Pro to reapply sunscreen regularly between matches or during breaks. Allow your skin to dry before reapplication for optimal adherence.

- Challenges: Variable terrain and elevation, prolonged sun exposure.
- Recommendations: Take advantage of the Surf Band Pro to reapply sunscreen during rest breaks or when stopping to enjoy the view. Ensure thorough coverage on all exposed areas, including hands and feet. Please note that Surf Band Pro can also be used to carry a mosquito repellent.

By incorporating the Surf Band Pro into your sun protection routine, you can easily and conveniently reapply sunscreen during outdoor sports activities. Remember to follow proper application techniques and allow your skin to dry before reapplying for maximum effectiveness. With the Surf Band Pro, staying protected from the sun's harmful rays has never been easier.
