    You'd have to try out different thicknesses in different temps and see what is best for you. Temp tolerance seems to be like the pain scale, subjective from one person to the next. I'm a minimalist for neoprene as I'm a furnace. But when I do rubber up, it's a properly fitting Drylock brah.
    emass how long have you been surfing now like 7months? are you king of the break yet?

    11 months now brah, and I'm expecting a slab of lobster meat with a candle sticking out of it for my 1 year anniversary, so plan on giving a call to my local fish market in a month. Thanks bud! Have surfed more in cold water than a lot of this forum ever will, by default of location. Gimme the rundown of how many years/sessions into surfing I have to get to before I can comment on wettys and I'll stick by it.

    Thanks for the advice, im pretty new to all this, this being my first winter surfing

    Exactly! That would help so much if all piers had that.

    Grommet, keep up the charging and stoke. GA winter surfing is equal to mid-Spring/late-Fall surfing in MA. Be thankful for that.

    I wore everything today. But I usually get in a 4/3 around this time.

    Dune - flipping off the haters then following it up with a double Shaka will raise your body temp 3.8F
