ive always wondered why they put the knee pads on wetsuits, ive never found any use (that ive realized) of them.. does anyone know the answer to this dumb question.
they're helpful for me because when I paddle, i tend to move my legs a lot. if those pads weren't there, i would get a bad rash/scab on my knees/lower thighs because i sway my legs and they rub against the board when i paddle.
i wish my knee pads were thicker. i tend to drag my back knee alot and it tends to wear out, ive gotten rips before. Think about it, if ur tucking into a tube sometimes ur on one knee, if it were just neoprene the suit would wear out quickly rubing against ur board
