Looks like it's gonna be a warm day, and the water is about 46. Thinking about rocking a 3/2 with my 7mm booties and 5 mm gloves. 3 mm hood with the suit.
Anyone think I'll be too cold? Taking into account I'll be on a log so from my thighs up I'll be out of the water.
My problem is I only have a 3/2 and a 5/4/3. And when it's over 50 degrees I feel like I'm gona die of heat sitting in the lineup.
Anyone try going to a light suit on these warm days before? I did a lot of surfing this winter and I can not wait to shed some rubber.
edit: I'm going with it. I always put my suit half on before I leave in the morning. I just put it on and I forgot how light 3/2 suits really are. 1 thing is I know I'm gona be cold and my body is saying take it off. But on the other hand, my body is also telling me it barely feels like I'm wearing a suit. So for now it stays.
edit2: I b1tched out and put the winter suit on. Next time lol
Really depends how much time you spend in the water. If you get dunked quite often, or get hit by a lot of waves, then I'd say you're gonna get cold pretty fast. If you're simply floating in the line-up on a sunny day, then I guess you'd get by.
I didn't go through with it. Chickened out like a little girl when I looked at the ocean and put on the winter suit. Next weekend though I'm going to drop to the 3/2, the water should be nearing 50 by that time.
