A lot of times after surfing in the winter and many times during i get a very unpleasant burning sensation in my peehole or/also under my fingernails. The peehole burning happens a lot of times in the water. The under the fingernail burn is usually the day or two after. Anyone have any insight?

burning peehole/under fingernails
fingernails yes, but during and immediately after session and last for up to 12 hours, but begins to subside as soon as I get warm and slowly goes away...within 8-12 hours.
peeing? i'd say try wearing a brief (speedo, etc.) underneath your suit...maybe things are getting rubbed and moved around down there the wrong way and you need some "restriction" in movement...just a guess, and maybe worth a try.

The "Gold Member" one looks nice.
Kidding aside. Maybe it's irritation from the pressure of laying on the board and restriction from the wet suit - particularly if you're el naturel underneath. Speedo, Under Armour shorts or something similar will help reduce friction. The saltwater may irritate it further.
I don't know about the fingernails issue. Sounds like it might be related to cold temps and/or restricted circulation in the hands due to excessively tight fitting gloves.
boy from wandering around too much. One other thing I do when the water gets below 40 degrees is I wear
a pair of XL Memphis gloves CAT# 7506-XL, style #5025. Pollution from the ocean is pretty caustic
stuff. I sometimes get stinkeye when I surf in New Jersey's wonderful industrial and human fecal run-off, and other stuff from waste. Even salt spray can irritate the eye. In your case, the stink-eye is in the eye of your manhood and under your fingernails - entirely possible. I recommend the XL gloves as I am 6' 220lbs and I have large hands. Get whatever size are appropriate for your hands.
Shannon also makes 6.5mil thick gloves like Memphis but you will find the Memphis gloves are probably
the better, more comfortable glove.
I think we can eliminate prostate and yeast or std's or other infections since you have it in your
hands and soda fountain. So your pier gets the sleuth-nod!
Good luck - I hope you feel better, one big guy to another!
PS By the way, something I did not mention. If this only happens in cold water, then it might just
be related to circulation also. You may have mild damage from the extreme cold. I might
recommend some aspirin or other salicylic acid-containing compound such as willow branches to
improve your circulation. Just a thought. Aspiring and cayenne peppers can help with blood flow.
Capsaicin can help with blood flow. I forgot this only happens in the cold water.

Maybe surfing at Belmar NJ would help?

After your sesh, take a q-tip and douse it in rubbing alcohol. Next insert about 1/2" deep in peehole. Pretty sure this will rid your problem. Good luck!
