Race Board Boots

Postby davesails7 » Tue Nov 27, 2012 10:00 pm

Anyone have any advice on boots to use for riding raceboards in cold weather? (only down to 45F air, 45F water)

For twin tip riding I love neoprene fin socks (no hard soles) so you can really feel the board. When I use them for the raceboard though, getting in and out of the straps really tears them up. They last a full season on the twin tip, but only 3 or 4 sessions on the raceboard and they are full of holes.

Is there a good boot that is thin and flexible enough to slip easily in and out of the race straps but still strong enough to not get torn up?

I just ordered some Atan boots for the same purpose. I have read good things about them and hopefully they will have the barefoot feeling as advertised.
