I'm getting old enough where i don't care what i look like, just don't want to get fried teaching my nephew how to surf.

So....what is the best surf "hat" out there? They all look kinda dorky but maybe one of you knows a better one. Wearing a hood just doesn't really work and is way too hot.

thanks!

I'd go with something like this as well.

You'll get guys on here who say you're a dutch bag if you wear a trucker hat out in the line-up. I give zero fvcks about that. It's more important to me to keep the sun off my face whilst not being the kook in the bucket hat :monkey:

Don't care what you look like is OK, but surely you have some dignity left? Put a trucker cap on if you must, but don't wear a surf hat, for the love that's holy, don't!

A hat with a drawstring or strap might work a wee bit better than one without.

the Dakine one does have a chin strap draw string. just not as thick as say the FCS surf hat. Was looking at the trucker one as it more of a hat type of hat which is normal for me to wear

Just go bucket hat and be done with it. I proudly wear my FCS one. IDGAF what people think. I dont have to watch myself when I surf, just the wave, so it doesn't bother me. After all the "bros" see your first wave and that you can actually surf, the premeditated kook hassling ceases.
It always blows my mind how many people care what strangers think of them.
