Do you think the hood could come off in the warm weather even if the water is still cold?
....I just dont wanna get surfers ear, that looks bad.
I understand one of the bouys is reading 52. I am just telling you that the water along the coast of MD is NOT 52. Correct me if I am wrong, but the ACTUAL water temp out there is mid to high 40s right?
Im not saying that it doesn't SAY its 52. I am just saying, its not 52 right? Its closer to 47-48... I just checked mulitple sources and they all read about 47. Strange...
So, was it really 52 out in the water today? I mean, that was a huge jump from 42 to 52 in a matter of 2 weeks. Seems a bit fast to me. I dunno though. if it felt 52, it was 52.
It felt cold to me tonight and I took down my hood and got an ice cream headache bad. I am still in a 5/4/3 and comfortable. Doubt I will be in a 3/2 before mid May. I can't wait to shed that rubber but a 3/2 now no matter what the air is seems crazy! You guys are way tougher than me :( . That inlet water rushing out of the bay can be warm as hell. Anyone ever have the pleasure of surfing the inlet at the end of a long hot summer day with a strong outgoing tide? That water on the beach can reach the mid eighties and feels like a bathtub.
there is no way you were in a 3/2 3 weeks ago. it was barely 38 at that point, and yea i know. if you go out now you will be fine in a 4/3 no hood, unless its big like tuesday. if you take 3 waves on the head you hurt, bad. goodluck in your 3/2. ha:cool:
Does anyone know the actual temperature in Frisco. I'm going down this week, and its reading 69
Dial a Bouy Line told me Frisco was 53, sounds about right cuz VA Beach is 48 today.
