Beachwear & Water Sports
Enjoy the Water with Water Sports Apparel & Gear
DICKS Sporting Goods offers a wide selection of beachwear and water equipment so you can enjoy the water. Pick up everything you need from swim apparel and sunglasses to inflatable pool floats and paddle boards.
Swim trunks and board shorts for men and boys are available from top brands including Speedo®, The North Face® and Volcom®. Women and girls can find one-piece and two-piece swimsuit styles from brands Roxy® and Hurley®.
DICK'S Sporting Goods satisfies the need for more specialized beachwear with an assortment of rash guards and wetsuits. Water shoes and flip flops are available for men, women and kids, as are sunglasses from a number of brands.
Women's two-piece swimsuits are available for both leisure and recreation. Swim tops with a sliding triangle bra and ties at the neck and back are perfect for relaxing on the beach or by the pool. Styles with a supportive chest band, wider straps and crossover backs are more comfortable and supportive during physical activity like surfing.
Board shorts are made with fast-drying materials, and many styles include a zippered inner key pocket to store essentials. Shorter-cut or split-leg board shorts accommodate maximum-movement activities like beach volleyball and running. Longer cuts protect thighs from chafing while surfing or watercraft riding. Men's and boy's board shorts are constructed with a mesh liner for comfort.
For dedicated surfers, snug-fitting rash guards protect the torso from chafing and wax irritation during riding and come in long and short sleeved styles. Wetsuits offer warmth and protection for both divers and surfers.
When you buy a rash guard, make sure it is made of nylon and Lycra materials. These materials have a high SPF factor to keep your skin protected from the sun's damaging rays.
When shopping for a women's swimsuit, consider the type of activity you will be doing. A tight, supportive fit is necessary for sports like surfing and beach volleyball, but a shapelier two-piece is just fine for sun bathing.
Board shorts should promote comfort and mobility, so it's best to purchase a pair made of either polyester or elastin. These materials are flexible, resilient and quick-drying. Additionally, look for board shorts with strong stitching at the seams so they are reliable wear after wear.
