When I'm not wearing my cold water booties and go bare foot, I tend to get some water into the suit (pyro pro) via the ankles, so I'll wear my 2/3mm wetsuit under the drysuit only and any water that gets into the suit is non-issue.
Just out of curiosity - but why do you use a drysuit when it is sufficiently warm for a regular non-witnher wetsuit ? (barefoot = quite warm)
Or have you been "economical" and got a super summer wetsuit (2/3mm) and a drysuit, only, and saved the normal wetsuit away ?
To me it makes no sense to use a drysuit when you dont need booties...
But on the other hand - a drysuit with a very thin or no inner layer is extremely light of course
And as most of us here prefer drysuits with "socks" - there is never any discussion about booties or not when it gets cold....
Its just, that the booties are worn, by all kitesurfers, before (or max at the same time) you change to a drysuit (or a thick 6mm winther wetsuit) here.
It might be locally dependant of your air versus water temperature though - maybe you have warmer water than air where you kite ?
