Yes, you can wear a jockstrap with your boardshorts. You can wear jocks under any clothing. For swimming purposes you can purchase "swim" style jockstraps which have a thinner waist band making it easier.


I think the swimmer style jocks are more comfortable, and they can be a good call to wear under your board shorts.


Try the new Bike jocks. The waistband is bigger than a swim style jock but smaller than a old style jock. I surf wit it and its good.


You can were a jock under anything, including board shorts or you can "free ball" if you want. I would wear a swimmer style jockstrap, the waistband is narrower. Just my preference.


Check out helo shorts to wear under boardshorts. I get good support, and they're mad comfortable. Plus they dry out super fast which is clutch.

No, it is not. A jockstrap is a protective device for the genitals.

Boys can wear a jockstrap to hold a protective cup in place, which protects you from a direct hit in the genitals. Or, a boy can wear a jockstrap just for support, to keep everything from bouncing and moving while he runs or works out.

This is completely up to you. If you wear boxers, normally you will put the jockstrap over the boxer or boxer brief. If you wear briefs you can wear it over or under. Anything smaller than that you might try wearing it under. Or you can just wear it as itself. It's a personal preference. I do not wear underwear with a jockstrap.

A jockstrap would help support your genitals, and keep them from bouncing or twisting.

You should wear a jockstrap with a cup for contact sports such as football, baseball, hockey, etc. But it's important to wear a jockstrap for support for anything involving running, jumping, or twisting - even without direct hits - track, basketball, soccer, etc.

It's definitely a good idea to wear a jockstrap, for any sport with a lot of running like that, to keep your genitals in place and prevent testicular torsion.

Most swimmers just wear Speedo or Speedo-like swimming suits. Some swimmers wear a "swimmers jockstrap" too. A "swimmers jockstrap" has a narrow 1-inch waist-band, which is smaller than the standard 3-inch waist-band of a standard jockstrap. The narrower 1-inch waistband will not reveal the jockstrap as much and the jockstrap waist-band will stay under the swimming suit. However, male swimmers who want to show a bigger "package" may chose to wear a cup-jockstrap under their swimming suit to enhance their masculine appearance. But they don't really need the protection of a cup when they are swimming. So it is all a mater of personal preference.

Yes, it is highly advisable to wear a jockstrap for support. It will keep your testicles from bouncing around when you run and prevent strain- and discomfort- on the spermatic cords

You wear it the same as your underwear against your bare skin with the cup pocket facing you you can also either wear it by itself or under a pair of underwear? As an athletic, I have worn a jockstrap while running, weightlifting, playing basketball and etc. but I am no expert. I never wear underwear over my jockstrap. The jock gives you much needed support. If you are playing a sport like baseball or (American) football, I would recommend wearing a cup to protect your "boys". If you are riding a bike, I would recommend wearing a jockstrap with a soft cup.

A cup is the hard protective cover you wear to protect against impact. A jockstrap can be used to hold the cup in place, or worn to support the genitals during sports.
