    to cold for boardies?

    So here is my rant: Pulled into the parking lot at a spot in central long island clean 2-3ft+ water temps 70+ air temps 90+ and people with 3/2s everywhere about half the people out there in boardies. Almost as funny as the time I surfed so cal and the jacked 20y/o guy wearing 4/3 boots and gloves looked at me (16 y/o) like I was crazy for wearing a 3/2 in 59 degree water. Its funny to watch people wear 3/2s and sweat in there suits while tons of 5y/o kids stay in the water swimming for hours without the slightest chill. these people need help... they wear the same 3/2s in the blazing summer as they do in the chilly fall. For all of you people who will say "it prevents rashes", "I like wearing it" wanna know something it wont prevent?...... the heat stroke you gonna get for wearing it.... what has this world come to? spring suits in hawaii??!?! Lol. I live by one motto for wetsuits IDC if the water is 60 degrees if its blazing out im not wearing anything more then a spring suit. I get cold very easily and when I jumped in the water today it felt like a bath tub. What is really sad is some of these people in 3/2s were actually better than average surfers -__- what do you guys think?

    O and BTW my spelling is bad because i just typed this thing in like 20 seconds and its not worth my time of day to make correct punctuation about this specific thread. lol

    Sounds like we were surfing the same spot today, tons of dudes in suits and the other half (including myself) in board shorts. Every few minutes a handful would jump out and switch into their board shorts but still.. perfect weather and water temps

    @DawnPatrolSUP Well thank you good sir. Sorry I don't like people sitting about 10 yards out of the lineup having instant priority while even the loggers get run over sitting on the outside with there 10 footers....... I'm not here to start arguments with anyone. I was just ranting about softies who wear 3/2s in july while you came in here trolling. look at it from a surfers perspective SUPS are easy to catch anything with. Today people were waiting forever for a decent fun set to arrive.. and right when the chest high sets come and SUP comes out of nowhere and just starts running people over....... the only time people like SUPS is if you SUP. Im not here to start sh*t I just want you to understand where I am coming from.

    In Rehobeth beach, if your not wearing a banana hammock in water over 70 degrees then your not cool. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
