The Best Swim Trunks, Board Shorts, and Beach Gear for Summer 2013

Our picks for 2013's top gear that'll have you covered from the volleyball net to the boardwalk. Plus, a rash guard you can't surf without.
Surfers listen up: we’ve found a rash guard you can’t hit the waves without. Patagonia designed its handmade 2mm neoprene Men’s Longsleeve Reversible Top for warm water between 65-75 degrees (think East Coast, during summer). Strong flatlock seams prevent high-stress areas from bursting open. Plus, long sleeves provide full-torso sun protection and extra warmth during chilly or windy mornings. Wear with the light side out for hot weather, or reverse to the dark side for cool weather. Your choice couldn’t be simpler. ($119; patagonia.com)
