i was planning for a 3/2 tomorrow, but the air temperature is too low. not even cracking out of the 50s. it's hard to believe it's warmer out right now then it will get the whole day tomorrow. that sucks. i usually trunk by the 1st of june. last year i was, but it took the last week of june to trunk in monmouth county back in 09 when we had that cool spring. i was also in a 3/2 last spring by mid april i think. hoping to shed the gloves real soon here, and the boots it's gotta be 60/62 for me to get rid of those. my feet get cramps, and my toes come out of place, and it's not very fun. 65 degree water temperature + at least 68/70 degrees, and sunny i'm in trunks no problem.
I talked to a guy fishing off a good surf spot yesterday. He caught a small striper and a good size ray. Water isn't 3/2 temp yet, but we're getting closer. Seemed to be more than usual garbage on the high tide line, but it's been raining alot too.
i was wondering if i can bring out my 3/2 xcel suit into the water this wknd, i usually go to south jersey. kinda dont wanna bring my 5/4 hooded suit but all i have is the 5/4 and 3/2.
i would bring both down but im not sure if i need to be hooded at this time
yeah. I'll probably wear a 3/2 with 3mm boots and 3mm gloves

Try going in without gloves an if your cold put them on. same goes for everything else.
I am poor. I have had a same 4/3 wettie with a vest and an attachable hood that i have been using for 4 years now. IT KEPT ME WARM IN ALL WEATHER UNTILL I GET HOT IN IT ! (MAY/ early JUNE) > Then i go to my 10 year old spring suit
Yes it leaks! I have no idea how thick my boots are. my gloves are lobster claws and thats about as much as I know about them.
You all are a bunch of kook poser-pros.
GEAR BRAH ! I've been so sick for years now reading all this nonsense and I finally speak up
you're so core, brah! we should all surf in crappy, leaky wetsuits so we can all be as core as you! anyone who educates themselves about their suits is a kook!

being core is something to be proud of. being poor is not.
i'm calling you a kook b/c you think you're so much better than everyone else. the guy asked a question. if you don't like it, stay out of it.
You got it, ill stay out of it. Repetitive questions suck !
