    I think skill diminishes stoke. As much as I love surfing, I got a whole lot more pleasure out of it before I really learned how to surf. It becomes an addiction that needs to be fed. Chasing the...

    I've worn a Drylock 4/3 all winter here in NY. Mind you, it's only good for 2 hours or so, but as long as you have a decent hood, 7mm boots and mitts you should be fine now.
