I don't shoot near water TOO much given my home location but in NZ+OZ I'm about to spend a lot of time in just those places, sometimes day after day after day.
So I've done some research but would really love to hear from people who actually do it - what do you guys wear in these situations?
What I've come up with is:
- Barefoot - pretty darn easy, but water will be colddd. Could also potentially hurt feet or slip on rocks
- Sandals - I'm not really a sandals-wearing person (though flip flops I do) - they'd at least provide grip around rocks but get covered in sand
- Watershoes - these could work I suppose, an improvement over sandals? But sand might get in and get very uncomfortable real quick?
- Neoprene socks - I guess like a wetsuit - I don't think sand will get in? Should help with water/temperature but I'm thinking I'd still need to wear something over them for comfort/grip?
Now I'm not swimming out into the ocean, but those typical locations walking along the beach (lots of dry sand) and to the water's edge (waves, wet sand) and then around rocky outcroppings (potentially slippery rocks, waves)
