Depends a lot on whether you are riding hook or slider.
No it does not.
Sorry, I was referring to whether to wear it loose or tight. Not the op. If you ride with a rope you can wear it really tight. If you ride with a hook, looser can be better.
Only if you like bruised/ broken ribs

Re: Zhik Hydrophobic pants review... warm water protection

BTW the hydrophobic nature of the pants just comes from a coating. Nylon yarns intrinsically do not have any sort of hydrophobic properties, in fact it's hydrophilic.

Honestly all these are is yoga pants with a non whicking coating...

Re: Wetsuit rubber going bad - anything to do?

Another suit. Some polymer have a longer shelf life than others, and the usage factors into that (sometimes even not using it, like with car tires, can be worse).

Re: San Francisco Bay Area in October

Yeah if you're just looking to cruise around, any spot in the Bay will do. But the chance of getting a good day in October is low :/

Re: San Francisco Bay Area in October

October is the end of the season and you can't really count on much/ it's a crap shoot/ could be crazy storm wind.

No one in the Bay Area will rent a kite, but Boardsports will demo boards at Alameda, and Coyote Point.

What sort of riding are you looking to do?

Re: Help! Modi Pro kite surfboard

What seems so amazing about it? Nothing about it pops out as any different than another 5'6" round tail with some tail channeling.

This post guerrilla marketing?

Re: First strapless ride on a surfboard - Diagnosis?

Almost every rider I have seen that switches from tt to surfboard rides with far too much weight on the back foot. ...As a beginner, as you improve this will all change. This is my best guess as well. Because without pictures or video of you riding we can only guess. Did you instantly go upwind on ...

Re: Best place to learn to foil on East Coast

the main reason I have not progressed is my fear of sharks.
The only more worse hobby for you would be surfing

Act normal and stop pissing?
2 people in this world

-People who pee in their wetsuits

No shops in your country carry it? You don't need to use it that often so it last a long time.
