I am a 10 and a half shoe size and I was using the xcel 7mm bootys with large tech 2 fins . I picked up the 5mm h2o bootys and they are softer and comfortable in the fins but definetly not as warm..also the excel has these rubber soles that make them a bit bulky..I guess I'll have to spring for the bigger fins anyways!!!
For my wetsuit I have a 5/4/3 infiniti excel with the hoodie. It's a very warm suit a bit restictive but very comfy my core stays plenty warm!!!! gloves are excel 5 mm not too warm finger tips get numb!!
As for streching....I'am good for about 45 min the night before 30 min right before I go in and another 30 min afterwards I'll eat a bannana with a cup of tea on the drive I avoid a heavy meal before a surf but I usually go big the night before!!!
In the summer I never cramp and I try to get at least 2 days a week in the water...In the winter season I go in maybe once a week if the conditions are worth it but I'll swim at the local pool if I go more than 2 weeks without getting wet !!
Thanks for the reply!!!!

Leg cramps in cold water!!
I don't know what it is, cold water or that I"am out of shape but lately I've been cramping my hamstrings and calfs after about 2 hours in the water. It happened to me this past Friday paddling for into a wave.... it wasen't nice I ate it!!!!!!! Any suggestion to help ease the cramping. I already streach and do some yoga. Could it be those tight a$$ bootys and fins? Any suggestions would help.
