Wearing surf rash vest as base layer?
Don't really have the cash to splash out on a proper one, so wondering if wearing a rash vest would prove as functional and as comfortable as a base layer?

It should keep you warm, but I doubt it will have any wicking properties.
Let us know how it works out.

I wear skins and it feels like they are just a cross between a rashie and a wetsuit so I can't see why not :)

id say go with underarmour instead... rash guards have no wicking properties; lol just UV ray protection!

ive found that proper base layer vs anything synthetic (polyester in most cases) there really isnt much of a difference so i dont see the need to spend $75 on something you could get for $10 (cheap walmart shit) but then again i dont do much hardcore riding where im sweating my ass off...
