And we'll say a little prayer for San Diego while trying to find waist high in 41 degree water with ambient at freezing.

Lovin it, H²O is warmer than the air. 3/2 & a squid lid, booties for any sesh longer than 2 hours and empty line-ups. Gonna get back to our normal 70° temps today. It was 42° when I left the coast this mornin, 35° yesterday.
Ha Ha that's friggin awesome! I was at the beach checking the surf this morning at 8am in 40 degree drizzle wearing a tea shirt.

....I love it there when it rains. People drive 10 mph on the freeways.
Hahah people are the same way in Charleston, SC. Once it gets below 50 the huge jackets, beanies and scarves come out. I was surprised when we went to SoCal before Christmas it was actually pretty cold in the mornings. We got pretty crazy weather as far as their standards go. It rained hard 4 days our of 10 and was in the upper 30's a few mornings.
Respects to yall in the north east. The coldest water temp i have ever experienced is the mid 40's and that was COLD in a 4/3 hooded with 5mm gloves and booties. I think anything colder than that with air temps lower than 30 would be pretty terrible unless the waves were perfect.

omg i've dawn patrolled every day this week. i know the water is around 55F... but when the air temp is 35-38F, that is cold, no matter who you are or where you're from. it's probably important to note that most houses/apartments are not modern here and the only built-in climate control we have is a lousy ceiling fan. so it's more or less the same temperature inside as it is outside. i haven't felt room temperature in weeks (feels like months) save a few trips to rite-aid or fresh & easy.
i would consider anything under 32F extremely cold or arctic, but for me, 35F air temp when my thickest suit is 3/2 is not too fun... all for 1-3' waves... and sd is SUPPOSED to be the winter magnet of southern california... blah. can't wait for summer.
