    You should be fine. If you have been warm wearing that until now its not going to get too much colder at this point.

    that's my exact setup, except i wuz rockin 5mm gluvez. i surfed 2 dayz ago in 20 degree air temps and wuz ROASTIN in suit! ur handz/feet may b lill' cold @ 1st, but that usually goez away after thu 1st 10 minutes, az u start paddlin and git blood runnin thru bodeey.

    Don't want to sound like a beatch, but I wore Xcel 6/5 X-lock with 7 mil boots and gloves last Wednesday and was sweating my nads off. 5/4 works great unless the wind is way up.

    As long as your comfortable in the water and your movements are not restricted what does it matter what you where. Surfing is about fun not who can go the deepest into winter wearing a 3/2 without boots and gloves.

    even though that does add a competition factor, dying generally isn't too fun hahaha

    I surf on the Northern OBX with an Xcel Drylock Hooded 4/3, 5mm boots, and 5mm gloves, with a heated rash guard my wife bought me from HeatedWetsuits.com , and I stay toasty warm, with water all the way down into the low 40s.

    You guys up in New England get much colder water than us. You might wanna try one out. I love mine, and surf all winter with it. Combined with the drylock suit, it's amazing how warm you will stay, even on the coldest days!
