GEAR REVIEW Rashguard Insight 51 Review – Surf Mei Mei
Brand: Insight 51
This Sydney-based lifestyle brand focuses on fashionable but affordable swimwear and clothing. Their collection themes change by season but overall designs are inspired by the 90’s surf and skate sub culture.

Function: This cute cropped top can be worn as a rashgruad over a swimming suit when surfing
