I surfed saturday 3 plus hours. AC and OC. No gloves and no hood. There were at least ten or fifteen guys out stripped down to 3/2 and boots. Better surfing. And so light. Global warming? Maybee. Fun? I'll take it anyday! Waves were really good to. It was an upic seesion just cause its January in 3/2's and stripped down to booties. Loving it.
