last sunday I shed my 6/5/4 for my 3/2mm with 7mm booties, 3mm gloves, 2mm hoodie
and didn't feel jack SHlT. maybe because I was already over heated from my earlier session and the beaming sun and 70+ degrees
nah, you don't need the hood. Last Sunday i wore a 4/3, 5mm boots, 3mm gloves, no hood. Got the brain freeze if I was duck diving or getting held under, but you can definitely brave it out since the air temps are much warmer now.
Yeah man me too. When youre just paddling around and waiting for sets I was a little hot in the hood last week and would have been good without it, but if you get caught inside and have to dive under a 3 or 4 wave set youll be wishing you still had it on. Im gonna stick with mine for at least one more week I think. Once the water hits 52 Im gonna ditch the hood and drop the boots down to 3 mils, I love shedding the rubber!
