    How late in the year...

    ...can you continue to surf in just a 3/2 and booties in Jersey?

    New to fall surfing, feedback appreciated!

    Thanks

    Glad to see others utilizing this site. I just ordered an Excel hooded dry lock for $249 after getting an additional 25% off during a sale day. It should be here in time for some nuggets next week. Fingers crossed. You should all be using this site. PM me or 34th for our e-mail addresses which will save you an additional $10 on your first purchase over $50.
    Everything I have ordered from there(which is a lot of sh@t) has been quality!

    You can wear whatever thickness suit/boots/gloves/hood that allows you to surf comfortably for as long as possible while not going close to hypothermic. That's relative to the individual within reason. When does it heat back up? Simple google search will tell you all the historical data on water temps every day of the year at any coastal location.

    Wait a minute...THIS IS A WETTY THREAD!!!!!!!

    I was a little chilly last week in my three two. Yeah. I think not till around then... it always feels like it takes 5x as long to warm up than it does to cool down.

    the difference between 60 degree water temp and 59 degrees is even significant. Last week was chilly - do you surf in NJ?

    I personally had the full gamit of **** 3-2 and 4-3 and 5-4,

    2 of each, that I way I surfed all day everyday when there was swell, I didnt go out and buy 2 wetsuits, but when one gets a little ragged, it makes a good backup
    also a pair of 3 ml boots and a pair of 7 mil boots
    also a pair of lobster claws for the winter

    likely new boots and gloves erry year if you surf a lot

    dont miss out on piano wire just cause you got spend money on wetsuits, keep the piano in tune, priorities, yea?

    and water stays cold later than you think, I am typically in a 4-3 till late april, sometimes may depending

    its all very personal (as is death in the movie beetlejuice)

    some people are thin and get cold easy, others are husky walruses and dont need much insulation
