need boat to surf fish, will these keep sand out?
MARIO R until the moment the use that I outside give strong within the boat and on rocks and within the water all good him
MATTHEW F yes unless you step in deeper than the top of the boot.
ANDRES D It will keep sand out as long your boots don't go lower than the top-end of the boot. When you go to the beach you get sand, lots of sand!
WILLIAM B I would think it would keep most sand out. But when you walk in the surf sand will rise and some will get it.
JOHN H They should...I've used them to fish the flats and gather blue crabs & shrimp. They have a nice bottom and fit tight around the ankles. I dive with them as well and never any issues with anything getting in them.
PETER P In my use so far, sand has never been a problem. I generally cover the boot with the end of my wet suit and this also helps form an additional barrier to anything getting into the boot.
MALCOLM T These boots are very sturdy. Used in both shore and boat. Never had an issue.
RICHARD S Not very well. They have zippered sides and while the fit is tight it won't prevent sand getting into the boot as you walk and flex you foot and ankle in the boot. If you keep the top of the boot dry you will probably be OK but if you go into the water and get the top wet you should expect that you will get sand in the boot.
I have used these boots for several years for scuba diving and they work well and have held up so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for that purpose but I am not sure they are a good surf fishing boot.
