Kookish for YOU.

No boardshort is kookish for others.

We won't find a solution here. Time to go kite...weekend is approaching 👍🏻

Most of the guys who wear Boardshorts over their wetsuit are too cool to bother to chime in....the un-cool guys are a bunch of keyboard ranters

Eventually @elguapo will get it. For the moment he keeps 'being kool'. :)

it seems this boardshorts over wetsuit is orginally a paddleboarder thing...
and these paddle-boarders turned kiters/wannabees/lost souls that insist on wearing their swimming trucks over their wetsuits..will continue to sling their arrows at me..
but it is ok...
...and i will continue shining a light on the RIDICULOUSNESS of wearing swimming trucks over a perfectly good wetsuit.

i'd do the same if these same guys decide to wear their boxers over blue jeans too...

sorry, not sorry.

At last, a serious topic.

I have noticed the disappearance of board-shorts-over-the-wetsuit over the last few years. It does look kooky now ... but it's an obvious demonstration that all fashions are transient. I think a major practical reason for wearing shorts was a place to stow car keys. Nowadays most "car keys" are electronic, so they need to be protected from water. I wear a plastic water pouch under my wetsuit. Additionally ... wearing board shorts when you're foiling seems even more odd. May still wear board shorts with a shorty where it doesn't look so weird.

Shorts over full length wetsuit is almost as kooky as a shortie wetsuit without board shorts.

Go figure!

The haters are gonna hate. The one piece of advice I regret not taking is , it's better to regret something you have done, than to regret something you haven't done!
Is it possible to regret going to Las Palmas for the week when there is a furry famdom, anesthetists, sex aid manufacturer, Christians and cowboy convention, all misbooked at the same venue and you stroll through the lobby (with or without shorts over the wetsuit)?

Or is that just infinite possibilities?

I'd walk out only to return with a big bag of pop corn and soda. Cuz that would be one hell of a shitshow I'd regret to miss.
