Protecting my "boy bits"

Postby rhohneck » Mon May 10, 2010 6:36 am

G'day ,

So I've been surfing 4 days a week for almost a year now, making amazing progress on a shortboard. Anyway one thing I haven't quite got the hang of is sitting on my board while waiting out in the lineup, I always loose balance and flop around or sink and I think this is contributing to my problem (below).

Anyway my question is... slightly weird but im sure you guys would understand lol. When I'm laying down on my board, paddling or whatever I always seem to get my boy bits in the way and squish my nuts, then later when I get out they're sore for a few days.

Does anyone else have this problem? Is there anything I can do/wear to avoid it. Sorry this question sounds so gay, but its genuine!

^ aye, too true.

I always wear speedos and "dress" (have a rummage) properly before putting wetty on.

same here, the balls go back inside when it's really cold. that's all very well until you land on them. then you're drowning and puking...

for sitting experiment with sitting way forward or way backward
