Yet at races and such, I’m usually the one guy not wearing board shorts over my wetsuit. Fine for me, I’ve never been a fashionista or cared about doing what others were doing.
Last week, someone on a local Facebook SUP group asked the question, here’s three main reasons for wearing board shorts over your wetsuit..
1. It protects the suit from cuts, scratches and rips when sitting or falling on sharp surfaces. Kiters use the shorts to protect the suit from the body harness.
2. It hides your junk. Personally, my suits are too thick to see anything, but maybe in a 2-3mm or for generally self conscious folks.
3. Because everyone else is doing it.
