Sounds like another impromtu SI ron day voo in the works!! coop, get the Zipman on the Carver.
Oh man that's cool! Wasn't that crazy? The water felt good but not that good.
Saw the same but dude was on a SUP in 51F water at 7pm. He didn't stay out long. Looked stoked though.

How this thread has 3 pages I have no idea. Why RI surfer claimed no gloves and 3/2 is fine then when on to ask if a 3/2 would cut it, I have no idea.
The water is 52 degrees, which is still technically hypothermic, a 3/2 will be fine if you can handle being cold. Don't be stupid, know your boundaries.
I surfed a 3/2 last week, today I put the 5mil back on to be warmers, I was hot as **** and will be only using the 3/2 from here on out.

I surfed yesterday in a 3/2, and the day before in a 4/3. The difference in maneuverability in the 3/2 was incredible, but I definitely got cold.

usually the water is a little warmer than low 50s this time of year but after a brutal winter its taking a lot longer.I don't see me trunkin it til early july.im in a 4/3 now with 5mil boots which is great,a 3/2 would surely cut my sesh in half being so cold.my 3/2 is pretty old,i rarely use it because when u can wear a 3/2 u can trunk it.maybe the newer ones are better,my 3/2 is atleast 6 yrs old and its still in a bag in my trunk from last summer.I don't care much for the 3/2 ,my winter suits are kept in good condition.im skinny so the cold water needs a few mil of rubber for me to deal wit
