It could be alot of things causing your rashes. make sure your boardshorts are new and not 10 years old or something. Also, if you have an older board that could be a problem too. When I surf my old school 6'4" rather than my 6'0, I get rash way faster. I can surf for hours without getting any rash on the 6'0. Also, check to see if there's maybe too much wax too far out on your rails.

I like to use a chafing powder added early on before I start surfing. Normally before I get into the car to go to the beach, I dust a little on for pretty much any activity. I am a hiker too because a lot of the best surfing spot where I'm from require a little hiking to get too. Anyways, This stuff works well whether your in the water or on land as long as your aren't sweating already and the product has completely been absorbed into your skin. don't put this on right before you go into the water. It will wash right off. If you have any type of chafing or skin irritation problem, I recommend you going to this site. http://www.antimonkeybutt.com/ Originally, I used this product for my thigh gap problem because my legs would rub together during surfing and hiking. Now, I just use it as a standard for any activity that requires a lot of moving. I don't trust other products. I used to use Gold Bond afterwards too, but this works better in my opinion. smile I hope this can help.

Just did 14 sessions in 7 days. Rub aquaphor on inner thighs before going out. Keep wax off rails. No rash at all.

And I have sissy sensitive skin.

Wore lycra shorts for a spot we surf where we had to walk a mile each way to get to the spot. This was in sweating balls hot weather too.

May too centayvos

Probably a couple; most recently I've had the Fanning Mirage, which I like.

This stuff is awesome. Same idea as vaseline or Aquaphor but not as slippery, stays on longer, and antibiotic as well.

Low profile seams might help. Try a brand that uses welded seams: https://www.ripcurl.com/us/shop/men/boardshorts/mirage/
or
interior cover stitch: https://www.oldbullshorts.com/boardshorts.html

My kids will surf all day long and have gotten some epic rashes. We found this stuff and it is magic. It also works wonders to prevent neck rash from your wetsuit. https://www.bodyglide.com/swim-rash-protection/

Yep. Diaper rash ointments like desitin, etc. work well.

I just put sunscreen on my inner thighs. Does the trick for early season too much wax on the rails.

Compression shorts under the boardies are slippery. Feel like a kook sliding off my board just sitting there. IMO a proper pair of surf board shorts pay for themselves despite the premium cost compared to normal yet surf brand trunks.
