Designed for use by aquatic and outdoor enthusiasts, Surfmud is a natural, zinc-based cream developed by surfers to help guard their skin during long hours of surfing in rough ocean conditions. This long-lasting, handmade formulation offers protection against the harsh effects of the surf and wind by creating a protective barrier between the skin and the external environment.
Containing 30% Zinc Oxide together with protective Beeswax and Kaolin Clay, it is suitable for all types of skin, including sensitives, and can safely be used on babies and toddlers. It is a natural skin colour, glides on smoothly and stays put.

We own a beach house in North Carolina (USA) and I am in the water from sunup to sundown. This is the only zinc cream that shields my skin and doesn’t make me look like a ghost. I can’t find a US supplier so I’ve been buying it from Australia. I have to order it a couple months ahead of time but totally worth it!
I used to work at a surf camp on the south coast and some weeks in summer I´d be 35 degrees and cooking all day while we gave lessons for 10 hours. We all used Surf Mud and it would hold for the whole day and give reliable protection. No I´m back in Europe and would love to get some for me and the stuff of our surf school because there is no other Zinc like it.

I just got back from a 7 day surf trip to Oaxaca Mexico with 10 guys. One guy from Hawaii had surfmud, the rest of us had Manda, Zinka, Head Hunter. We surfed for about 4 hours a day. The guy with the Surfmud was the only one of us that didn’t get cooked. As soon as I got back home I ordered $50 worth!!!!

Amazing product. My skin has never been healthier. I had pretty bad skin damage and at 60 my GP and also skin specialist said it was due to years of (mostly) unprotected exposure … “nothing can be done”. I discovered Surf Mud at a paddle event promotion. Not only did it protect from the elements but rejuvenated it and stopped it from drying out.
Great zinc the best we have used
We wear it when out water skiing and it stays on all day
My skin also feels great after wearing it
Kids love it
The best protection out there! I am a white water raft guide in Queenstown, NZ half the year and California the other half of the year and spend 12 hours a day in the sun getting splashed in the face and this is the only zinc that works and lasts in rough, windy, wet, sunny conditions. Not only does it offer protection, but I have also started to use it on windy cold days in the canyon as fantastic protection against windburn. It also is great for my skin, I have skin that breaks-out quite easily and I have never had a problem with surfmud, even if I don’t wash it off at the end of the day. And on top of all that, it lasts forever, I use it every day on my face and 2 cans lasted me 18 months. I recommend this to every guide I work with, it really is the best.

We were lucky enough to trial surfmud whilst on holiday over Xmas 2018. One year on and I’m back for more! My boys have always suffered burns under their eyes and nose from constantly wiping their faces in the surf. This stuff was amazing and didn’t budge! Wish I’d known about it years ago. Thank you for saving the fair skin brigade in our household!!
I am so grateful for Surf Mud, I can’t thankyou enough!! I have very fair skin and live in north west Queensland, summer is usually 40 degrees or more, and I am usually outside or in a vehicle. I wear a lot of layers of sunscreen to look after my face, and also some makeup for some colour. This is the best product I have ever tried, it is so thick and stays on all day, no matter how hot it gets. It gives a nicer finish than any of the tinted zinc sticks i have tried (I have tried everything I can find), and the tinted colour is perfect, and looks really natural. I wanted to say Thankyou, it has made a great difference for me.

Best zinc out there. As an outdoor swimming instructor, I am in the water for up to 8hrs a day. This stuff lasts. Its the only product I have used for the past 3 seasons. Can’t wait to try the lotion for my grandson
This is by far the best zinc ever.it stays on for hours, it’s better for you, AND the environment.the kids love it, its classed as their war paint. Need more availability in nz.

This is the best zinc I have found and I have tried most of them. My son has very pale skin and this is the only zinc that works properly. The fact that it is environmentally friendly usable added bonus. Looking forward to trying the lotion.

so I bought new lotion and applied to whole body except I missed an area on my neck. After a full day in sun (surfing and then accidently falling asleep!) I was very happy with the product performance- no sunburn ( except where I missed) and very easy to spread ( compared to other natural sunscreens) no smell either! thanks guys I am a happy new lotion user.
High Quality Zinc, great lasting power, handy tint! My friend (super light skin tone) and I were kiteboarding in +38 °C for hours and it lasted without rubbing off! Perfect for (water) sports with good natural ingredients

Worth the int’l shipping – this stuff is the greatest for weekends on the water.
Best zinc on the market by far. Fully water resistant so you’ll be protected all day. Reef friendly of course which is a great thing. It also makes a nice and flawless skin (much better than the whiteface haha)

My daughter surfs all the time and for long periods at a time. This is the only product we have used where she can be out there for 2-3 hours. When we go out now all the kids come over and ask to use it as they love it! we need a stockist in SA
