Here, wearing board shorts over your wetsuit is like a mullet. It does not only look utterly stupid but it´s also a good indication that you haven´t done any kiting in the past 5 years, so it´s better to keep a good distance. :wink:

Just shorts guys, because air 30 and water 29 degrees….Celsius!

Yeah, love that ! And landed so much new stuff.

But I am sure you guys too…every time something no one did before.

Keep pushing, and show us what you got. Looking forward to it !

In surfing I've never seen this. I'd think with all the sitting on your board wetsuits would split more but I've never seen that happen either.

I guess the pockets would be nice.

serious question... what are you doing that your cotton shorts will offer protection to your neoprene wetsuit?


just admit it..
the reason we kiters wear boardshorts over our wetsuits is the same reason paddleboarders so it.
we are SCARED folks will see the family jewels.
folks are self conscious about "others" knowing what type of junk their packing in there..

..there are no other reasons.
wet shorts are heavy.. limits flexibility..
maybe they *think* that they look cool ..

but when i see a guy wearing a wetsuit under boardshorts.. i see kiteboarding "ace and gary"
