Did you score anywhere today? I usually surf fire island, roads were so bad I didnt get out. Maybe the county response will include not closing our parks or bridges, but instead to plow access to them.. High hopes, but Ill get there some how.
I always got my gloves boots and socks at dive shops. I loves mittens. claws always left my index finger lonely and cold. The socks make a big difference in ease of putting on the wet suit. Before the socks I'd use plastic newspaper bags under my boots. When I first winter surfed, I had multiple cotton socks, plastic bags, then duct taped it.
