    I'll be down there myself and will be bringing a 3-2 which i will most likely use. If I need it I'll have a 5-3. But I usually get by at Thanksgiving with a 3-2 down there. Gloves and booties for sure. A hood would be nice. The bars are gonna be all different, and some places may not break at all anymore, so you might have to look around. The piers are always good. S-turns may not be working so good or may be epic, haven't heard. Sandy likely changed everything. But we're used to change down there.

    I went down last week. Checked a few different spots and found only one place that was even remotely ridable. This place went from totally flat to chest-shoulder and really fun. 12-15 guys in the water sharing the only peak. I've had more relaxed sessions on the north shore. I hope that's not an indicator of what this winter is going to be like down there. I dunno.

    3.2 with booties is fine.
