    I NEVER understood the rush to strip down to thinner suits and be the macho psycho to be first out of his wetsuit each year. It is far easier to cool off by flushing your suit than to try to warm...

    It's already in the upper to mid 50s. Won't drop too much more by Thanksgiving, but the air temp will. You'll want max coverage, so what you're planning on bringing should be fine. I prefer 5mm...

    Agree. See an allergist. I suffered from sinus infections every few months. Not a problem anymore.

    Get yourself a hooded vest for under your 3/2 with good boots and gloves and you can extend your season on both ends an additional month or so. Definitely worth the investment.

    Is there like a macho award for being the first out of a wetsuit every year? I don't get the rush to get hypothermia in this region. Peel off the suit entirely in Summer and you end up with...

    Anything below 60 is considered cold water and you only put yourself at risk for hypothermia if you start peeling off the layers prematurely. There's no medal for being first one to surf with out...

    Board shorts bunch up and cause chafing under a wetsuit. I've been diving for a long time and I learned early why divers wear bikinis under their wetsuits!

    I agree with the guys above! I never understood the mentality of changing in/out of a wetsuit at the beach--wind, sand in the suit, cold, heat, lack of privacy, etc. Wear your suit in the car both...

    That was the ONLY design of wetsuits in the 60s and 70s. The "flap" is called a beaver tail and closed with twist locks and was intended to keep the jacket in place and from rising up. Usually...

    Earlier you said you'd not go out in very cold weather or water and that you get "icecream headaches" in the cold water. THERE is your argument FOR a good 5/4 with all the bells and whistles. Being...

    Have to agree with the majority here. Don't scrimp. You'll get more comfortable year-round usage out of the 5/4. I'm in my 5/4 from Sept through late June. I've never been too warm in it.

    When shopping for a new suit, I always look for some sort of rubber seal at the neck, ankle and wrists. I also find that the more "skin" you have on the outside your winter suits, the better they...

    Why can't people spell DELAWARE (not Deleware) or REHOBOTH (not Rehobeth)? The latter is a small town inland in Maryland.
