Interesting product. Could have an interesting effect for suit repairs?
Stretchy is good

    Beyond that link, I know nothing of fabric taping, except that Quiksilver's high-end board short seems to be using inside taping, along with an elaborate Rip Curl board short that uses thin fabric-coated neoprene on the sides, tough nylon on front and back, and a band of super-soft, slippery material for the inner thighs--single strip starting at the bottom, continuing though the crotch, then back down the other side.
    I suspect that taping for board shorts and wetsuits can be the same.
    Last winter, I picked up traditional Katin nylon shorts, clearance sale. Short, 16", unusual metal snaps for the fly instead of Velcro or buttons, and a relatively close fit compared to many longer board shorts that are really roomy below the waist. The Katins are doing very well for beach swims.
