ya even when its colder outside in 55* water a 3/2 with thick gloves and thick boots will be more than enough. I've been out in that and been warm and i get cold easy i usually wear a long leg short arm 2/2 all summer unless its like above 75. even then i get chilly in just baggies
A good 3/2 with 3m gloves and 5m boots are fine. Have been in 3/2 since water hit mid-forties couple weeks ago here in Northern New England.
Does depend on your tolerance. Rather be a bit cool that hot. If you are moving around, catching waves, you will be fine. Once it hits low 50's you can drop to 3m boots. Can go to summer shorty suit once the water is upper 50's, and trunk it once it hits 60.
