Unless you're down with melanoma, it's probably a good idea to put on the Reef Rashie SS Men's Rashguard. It has 50 UPF-rated protection to block out harsh UV rays when the sun is high, and it's woven with elastane so it doesn't inhibit movement when you're paddling and surfing.
- Nylon/elastane fabric is stretchy for unrestricted movement while surfing and paddling
- Flatlock stitched seams are flexible and extremely durable
- Rashguard fit keeps the fabric close to your skin for superior heat retention
- 50 UPF rated to protect your skin from harmful UV rays

See if you can get a measurement of your chest, since that's what the sizing chart is pretty much based on. From there, it should be pretty easy to choose.
Nice rashguard shirt

This does the job for rashguard and sun protection, but doesn't really keep you warm. Fits true to size.
