Can you SUP surf in a drysuit? / SUPboarder Vlog

Can you SUP surf in a drysuit?! Over the winter months we’ve been wearing a drysuit when wing foiling and been loving staying dry and warm. So it got us thinking… how about wearing a drysuit in the surf?! For Prone surfing a wetsuit has always been the preference because of the way you have to duck dive with your board to get out through the breaking waves. But the way you paddle out over waves makes SUP surfing different and maybe well suited to a drysuit. Yes you’ll definitely stand out in the surfing line up wearing a drysuit! But we were keen to find out whether it was even possible, if it was safe and whether it was something we’d recommend. Reuben goes for his first ever SUP surf session in a drysuit and blogs his experience.

Hi Reuben,
interesting test , as always, I have just a question, how is wearing boots over the socks of a drysuit, and above all do you have the split-toe on your boots ?

Hi Reuben,
thanks for your answer, it’s exactely what I expected, what surprised me, instead, was that you don’t use wetsuit boots. In winter, water temperature, by us, is about 8° C ( 46,4 ° F ), I don’t know in England how much it could be, but I don’t think it’s much different. So how can you go barefoot, and come back with all your toes still attached ?
