    You people are over-analyzing and making bigger deals aboot stuff.

    When surfing in the winter, in the NE, 20 degree air temps and sturdy off shores are not uncommon. It's the friggin way it's supposed to be.

    It's winter.

    Y'all analyze the swell direction, the drift, the air temps, the water temps, the wind speed.........where to change into your suit......where to change out of your suit..............

    This is absurd. If you are a surfer......then surf. Stop looking for reasons to give it a pass. The waves are either worth it or they ain't.

    If it's too big/hairy for you, that's fine. Just admit it. Yeah, it sucks eating your pride, but don't blame the friggin OFFSHORE wind speed. Just say, " Too big for me.....too chunky for me." Learn to accept yourself and limitations. If winter ain't your bag, then hang it up until May

    You can be cold and stay out. It's when you start becoming disoriented and confused that you have a problem.

    Wow, another winner of a post.

    the vaseline idea is a good one as well.

    Foolhardy and DANGEROUS? Really............

    Headline: Asbury Park Press.........Belmar, NJ Three youths died while changing out of their wet suits yesterday, reports Belmar Chief of Police, Thomas Palmasano. "Yeah, uh, the three surfers exited the water, and were in the midst of peeling their wet suits off when the cold attacked and killed them. They died right on the spot."


    OMG, the surf world has been commandeered by metrosexuals.

    i only use it on the coldest of days & put it on after everything else (expect for my gloves, obviously) is on. i think the trade-off is worth it; i'd rather not be distracted by my face feeling frost-bitten when i'm looking to pull into some frosty shacks. most of it has been washed away by the time my session is over & i'm pretty aggro about rinsing my suit after those surfs.

    Lots of east fetch in this one if the models hold. Always an undercall in this situation for jersey south.

    u got dat rite - any face plant is a huge worry. a knee to the nose is another fun one.
    do you do this (long boarders etc don't).trying HARD to catch the wave; one pushes down
    on nose (of board) with chin.

    not saying i wouldn't do it if i had to, but w/ the air & wind temps forecasted tomorrow, i'd actively try to avoid it. i hardly think being informed & mildly cautious makes one a metrosexual.
