Barefoot Atire

After reading the posts on this site, I have decided to give barefooting a try. I have a question about what to wear while barefooting. I will have a barefooting suit, and barefoot shorts. Do you wear the shorts under the suit, or are they worn separately for different barefoot activities? Also, what is the correct way to end a barefoot run?

Thanks

Wear the shorts under the suit for maximum protection. This is very useful when first learning to foot. The best way to end your footin run is to do a "ride out" by simply squating down and fall back on to your butt, slightly lean back and keep your legs out in front of you with your feet up out of the water.

I like to foot in board shorts only, the "ride outs" are a little tricky( you have to lean back a bit more) if you don't it's not much fun

Footin is a fun sport if you train and practice safely

SkiMax--You don't wear a life jacket? What if you take a nasty fall or hit something and get knocked out?

It's the risk you have to take , like Mark P says " this aint no dress rehersal" I have plenty of footin suits that I make everyone else wear when footin on my boat, experienced or not. I do wear a suit when learning new tricks or on certain tricks such as tumble turns that are'nt much fun to do with out a suit.

I think this should have the standard "do not try this at home" disclaimer." I am sure you have done it many times and are very talented, but just looking at it scares the crap out of me.
