Which is gonna be the better day for the manasquan inlet in nj, saturday or sunday? Saturday looks to be big but choppy and then sunday looks clean but smaller. The inlet usually takes away most of the chop but if i have to choose the best day, which should i choose?

I have the day off Monday so I'm thinking about the three hour drive to the beach.
Will a 3/2 be ok and will I need booties?
I am hoping its not too sloppy, although the forecast deteriorated a little today.
the water is starting to decline pretty quickly, allthough its still definitely unseasonably warm. During the Noel swell, I was pretty cold at times with the 3/2 no boots.
I'd bring the booties along if you have them.

i was wearing a 3/2 with booties and gloves for the noel swell and got cold after about 2 and a half 3 hours but i get cold easily lol
i'd prob rock a 4/3 if I had one right now.. pending on air temps and wind. The wind is what made it really cold this past saturday.
I'd go with a 5mm and 3/2 boots for the weekend because again with the air temps and wind speeds. Otherwise a 3/2 and/or booties would've be fine. Noel dropped the temps pretty quickly with the NE winds so....otherwise it'd still be like mid-high 60s!

Even though the water is still hovering around 60 degrees, the air is gonna be in the low 50's on Monday. That's gonna cut through a 3/2 when the wind blows. Unless you have a really good suit with an insulator, I would think a 4/3 is the call. On the other hand, with the warm water you could probably get away with only 3 mil boots and 3 mil gloves. Depending on what time I paddle out on Sunday I may try my psycho 2 3/2 with insulator and no gloves, but I expect to get pretty chilly. If I go out early I'll be wearing the 4/3 with gloves.

4/3 or good 3/2 and boots should suffice.

I rock a leaky 4/3. Sealed enough to keep me warm, but just enough holes to cool me off. Time to start the Christmas list.
