    4/3 in 43 degree water

    So my 5/4 Mutant got all ripped up, so now I only have an O'neill 4/3. I still have my hoodie, 4mm boots and thick gloves. Will I die in a 4/3?

    I'll give you about an hour, max, depending on how well you tolerate it

    whatever, you are straight. If that suit is even half decent you can surf all day. I wear a 4/3 all winter and my 5mm boots are always the limiting factor.

    i used to rock a 4/3 all winter. you will be fine for a couple hours... just drink a lot of water right before you jump in and you'll be just fine.......
