September the Line Renna Top

The Renna top embraces timeless and thoughtful design.  It is our take of a dual-purpose hybrid top, that fuses elements of surf and activewear.  It is made for the ocean and surf, as much as it is, for active movement.

We understand the importance of buying less but better and the Renna top is our answer to that.   Our Italian sustainable fabric is quick-dry, UV protection, and chlorine and salt resistant properties.  All of which ensures a seamless transition from ocean to active movement.

Book Your Surf Trip: Logistical Tips and Tricks

Book your flight
Find a cheap flight by using Google Flights. They are our favorite search engine because they search websites and airlines around the globe so you always know you're getting the best flight.

Book your surf hotel or surf accommodation
You can book a really unique and local place with AirBnB anywhere in the world. We used it recently in Sri Lanka to book a place withing a 3 minute walk to a surf break. If you want to stay somewhere other than an AirBnB, use Booking.com, as they consistently return the cheapest rates for guesthouses and hotels.

Don’t forget travel insurance
Travel insurance will protect you against illness, injury, surf gear theft, and cancellations. Basically, you get protection in case anything goes wrong. I never go on a surf trip without it. We’ve been using World Nomads for close to ten years now.

Protect your personal data
When you travel, you're constantly logging into public Wi-Fi. VPNs are designed to protect all of your Internet traffic. This includes email, streaming music and video, voice calls, and anything else you can think of. We use ExpressVPN when we're on a surf trip.
