    Better to be too warm then too cold IMO. If you have low body fat, you'll be good in the 4/3 suit. You might be a little chilly in April-early May though.

    Me too. I wear my 3/2 into the end of June usually, starting in early May with torso thermal. I wish I just had the 4/3 instead.

    I buy Hyperflex because I can't afford Xcel or O'neill, but if you have the money the latter two are the best brands. If you live in Monmouth, join my facebook page

    If you think you will never be surfing in the winter, then just get a 3/2. You'll be more comfortable. I have like 7% body fat (i just finished wrestling) and i was overheating 2 weeks ago when i had a 4/3, in 42 degree water. go with the 3/2 unless you really think you're going to surf in the winter.

    And see I wore my 6/5/4 last Friday (77 air temp) and I was just right. The thing that sucks is moving around with more rubber than you need. (that's what she said)
