    A 3 mil with upper 50 s is always good to go. I'm very comfy. Never even heard of 5 mil suites now. Whatever stay comfy I am. A 3 mil is a lot better flexibility and plenty warm. Air temps were mid 40 s but water temp is more important. Toss on ur 6 mil in July hahhaha. Weirdos. 38 temps and. 5 mil that makes sense I would actually go a 6 mil but per what oven been hearing from this crew besides cresto 4 is everyone needs a 5 mil in upper 50 s water temp. I would think you'd want less suite for flex.

    Honestly, with modern stretch neoprene, a 5 or 6mm suit has plenty of flex. Surprised surfing companies don't come out with 7mm suits for middle of winter. It's probably because it's such a small market that would use it. The market is designed around southern California I think.

    Yeah, I love those hoodless 5 mils. So much versatility and great for fall when the air is so cold especially on dawn patrols, but you don't need a hood. Also, good for thin people who's core gets cold easy
