Do surfing booties go on the inside or outside of the diving surfing wet suit?

This is one of those things that seem natural to any surfer but if you are new to surfing and using surfing booties and diving surfing wet suits you just need someone to tell you. Surfing booties go on the inside of the diving surfing wet suit! You have to pull the diving surfing wet suit over the booties. Why? Because otherwise - if you leave them exposed they will fill up with water much faster. When your booties are full of water you loose the feeling for your board under your feet. If you pull your diving surfing wet suit over the booties the possible water entry point is facing downwards (better) instead of upwards (worse) so when/if you wipeout there is smaller chance that your diving surfing wet suit booties will be filled with water. Also the end of the diving surfing wet suit leg is usually made of some sort of non skid material so it doesn't slip up your leg and is also tighter (same reason). So the "seal" between your diving surfing wet suit and your surfing booties will be better if you pull the diving surfing wet suit over the booties.
