well, this is the first time I've extended my surfing season into the winter.
I used my 4/3 with 5m gloves and boots up till about the end of nov/begining december.
I have just used my hyperflex 6/5/4 with 7m gloves and boots last weekend for the first time and I was super warm.
I guess I would be able to use the 4/3 sometime in the end of april begining of may?
I would like to hear more def. ans. myself on the subject.
I live on Long Island and this was my first year surfing all winter, i have a 5/4/3 drylock with 5mm boots and 3mill drylock gloves. so i was fine all winter.
my friend on the other hand had a 4/3 non drylock with 5mm drylock boots and 3mill drylock gloves, but because his suit wasnt dry lock he was getting water in them. what also helped him survive the cold was the use of a 3/2 hooded vest worn under the 4/3 wetsuit.
Thanks for linking this, man.
I only have a 3/2 now but want to get in the water this spring in MA, RI and Maybe So. NH. I have 5 MM boots and 3/2 hooded vest so I am trying to decide if my next suit should be a 4/3 or 5/4/3 (Hooded or not?).
