been out in my springsuit the past two days and ive been fine. i think you could still mange with a top. a full might be overkill.
its only like 65 degrees outside, come on, are we really that sissy down here?
also what thickness of accessories should i get a 3mm or 5mm?
For around here, I'd just get the thinnest they have. My booties are like 1 or 2 mm. And I surf year round without using gloves.
I don't think that thickness in booties can have anything but a positive effect on your surfing. So unless there's a big difference in price, I would get some 3 or 4 mil boots. But for gloves, you might need them for end of January through the end of Febuary, and I wouldn't go thicker that 2 mils or so. Unless you're gonna be riding a log all the time, then you might get by with some thicker ones. But for shortboarding, thin as possible.
