Our new adult-sized 'Arafura Rash Top', named after the Arafura Sea to the north of Australia, is perfect for long days in the sun, fishing trips or for fun in the surf.

With minimal branding, and classic in design on timeless sky blue, this top features our Tribe Tropical logo on the lower right arm sleeve.

Ultra comfortable, this loose-fit UPF50+ rash top is unisex in design, for men or also women who might prefer a simple, loose-fit rashie. 

** Looks great with our 'Arnhem Summer' or 'Hamilton Island' board shorts. 

This same style of top is available for kids, enabling families to match and set the important example of keeping safe in the sun.


Features of this rash top include:

  • UPF50+ protection, blocking out 97% of UVA and UVB rays
  • Chlorine resistant polyester-blend fabric – OEKO-TEX certified for sustainability
  • Full arm and neck protection
  • Tribe Tropical logo on lower right sleeve
  • Limited run to eliminate waste, environmental strain, and to maintain boutique appeal


Our Arafura Rash Top is true to size, but designed to be a loose fit. We are told that these tops run on the larger side, so sizing down is recommended if you are between sizes. 

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns, we’re always happy to help!

My son & husband love these tops!

My red headed son loves this top and it suits his colouring. He loves that it's not overly branded like a lot of the surf brands. Perfect with his Tribe Tropical shorts! My husband has one too and loves that it's not skin tight like a lot of other rash tops. Highly recommended!


This is the only rashie my husband will wear! It's the perfect fit and colour!

My hubby is obsessed with this rashie it's the only one he will wear! The colour is amazing and the quality is excellent

My kids wore these swimmers for over 2 years. Not one issue with them, they still have a good year or two in them as well so last 3-4 years. We've had no fade or stretch, no pulling or pilling. Have handed down to friends children as my children outgrew them. Love them so much.

I am really impressed with the level of support the ladies swimsuit provides, even for a larger cup size, which is so hard to find.

Fantastic to wear for any water activity. I love the sun protection and comfort of the swimsuit while surfing, paddleboarding or just chilling at the beach.
— Amy M.
Tribe Tropical swimwear is by far the best designed and quality in Australia. The thought process that has gone into these designs, made for comfort, quality and being so sunsafe is a stand out. Each time my daughter wears these they wash up like brand new.

Hi! I’m Emily, mother of 3 little girls and founder of Tribe Tropical. 

Growing up I used to dread beach days!
As a red-head with fair skin, growing up in the tropics, I either had to risk being teased by other kids for covering up in a daggy old t-shirt, or end the day sunburnt & in pain. 

Having since suffered with countless skin cancer treatments (and further to the loss of my grandfather due to melanoma), I understand the importance of sun protection - I started Tribe Tropical with a desire to protect my family and yours in beautiful, high-quality sun-protective swimwear that people would feel good in & enjoy wearing. 

No-one should dread a beach day! I hope to help you to make them fun & burn-free also.
