The bottom line FACTS about
Bare Foot Wet Suits...
What makes our barefoot suit the best in the world?
Here are the facts that will allow *you* to become an instant expert.
BareFoot Wet Suits are made up of two distinct layers of material. The first layer is made of neoprene rubber. The second layer is made of flotation padding. These two layers and how they are constructed determine the performance of your wetsuit.
In our barefoot suits, these two layers are added to the butt, hamstrings, hips, back, ribs, and chest to protect the barefooter from the harsh friction that the water causes at barefoot speeds.
What separates our Barefoot Suit from the rest is the construction. The Lane "Dawg" Bowers Signature Series Barefoot International Suit has 26mm of neoprene and flotation padding . This is twice the amount of protection that exists in any other barefoot suit.
What makes this suit hands down better is that there are also two layers of glue that are used to glue the 26mm of neoprene and flotation padding together.
The result is that you can get the Best BareFoot Wet Suit on the planet for the best price AND we are the only company in the world (TheFootersEdge.com) that guarantees it is the best or we will buy your suit back used!
What does this information do for you and your barefooting?
Whether you are learning to barefoot, learning your deepwater starts, tumble-turns, flips, or even barefoot jumping, you will*immediately* feel the difference on the water when you wear our barefoot suit. We *guarantee it* and are the only company in the world who is willing to let you use our suit and see the difference for yourself!
How should this suit feel when I first try try on?
Because of our high performance construction, our suit will feel very stiff when you first try it on. If you find that our barefoot suit feels too tight in the the chest or the length, this is absolutely normal. Our suit will conform to the fit of your body *only after* using it for a minimum of a dozen barefoot outings.
If you feel like it is too tight or that you will not be able to perform your barefooting because of this initial restriction, do not panick. Force yourself to get through the first dozen runs. Our suit is designed to expand in any area where it is restrictive up to 20%.
What you will be pleasantly surprised about is that you will glide effortlessly on the water. Deepwater starts will feel like a breeze. Tumble turns will feel turbo charged. Backwards deepwater starts will not feel harsh on your chest.
Your barefoot skiing will absolutely improve even while you are breaking in your barefoot wetsuit. Do not be discouraged by how the suit feels when you first try it on.
All the best barefooters in the world have learned that the key to getting the best performing wetsuit is to allow for the correct amount of time to break it in.
Why would I need IronMan barefoot shorts?
The reason for having the IronMan barefoot shorts in addition to our barefoot suit is not for protection. The reason why I insist that my students use these shorts is because of the absolute ease of how well they glide on the water as compared to not using them.
I used to just let students find out for themselves, but now I do not like to waste the time. I just insist on it, guarantee the results and watch their expressions as they learn to barefoot, tumble turn, flip, and jump so much easier.
Ocassionaly, I will get someone who puts on my IronMan barefoot shorts and complains that it feels like too much equipment or that it is too restrictive.
I give them all the same advise I am giving you right here and now...
Use them first (under your wetsuit), and see the results for yourself. You will never want to barefoot without them ever again. They will break in and they will get comfortable after a minimum of a dozen barefoot outings.
