Your title says neoprene but your description describes sun protection. usually, even very thin neoprene is very hot especially if your instructing out of the water in warm months in warm climate. You really need a sun tech hoodie and double that up with another sun tech long sleeve shirt in the warm months, with something under the hood protecting your neck. During the cooler months you'll need this.

Hyperflex neoprene jacket, best on the market in my limited opinion.

Hat plus hood works for me. I started out with a baseball cap style hat, but the bucket style hats work better. I use a thin rash vest (or stinger suit) with a hood, which can go either above or below the hood. This is for keeping the sun off my neck.

Neoprene jacket with hood is killer for windchill.
For days when it is not chilly, consider:

I use uv rash guards with hoods too.
Another option is a gath helmet with uv visor.
Also check out surf hats with a chin strap.
