    Until last year, I wore a 3/2 all winter every winter. I surfed ALL winter (Ing NC for 3 of the past 5 years) but was really really cold alot of days. Finally this past year I got a 4/3 and it has made all the difference and I think this year I'm going 5/4/3. I would definitely not recommend a 3/2 for the winter but if you've got nothing more and no funds to upgrade, it's doable.

    I did this and trust me, it sucks. You'll get really cold, and your hips/legs will go numb, definately not worth it.

    Layers just make it worse, and you feel real heavy and have no flexibility.

    My advice is to hit all the shops till you get someone to cut you a deal. Thats what I did and came out with a sweet winter suit for 150$ cash, brand new. 350$ suit new. Usually someone will have a 4/3 or 5/4/3 that they want to get rid off, so just walk in and make them an offer. Good gear makes all the difference, bite the bullet and spend the money.

    go for a 4/3 xcel infinitie or ripcurl fireskin, then where a thermal with hood attached, 7mm boots(must have) and 3mm psycho gloves, it lasted me through jerseys winters

    i wear a 5/4/3 quicksilver ignite for the winter along with 5 mm boots and gloves and that keeps me warm. I couldnt imagine only wearing a 3/2 in the winter especially on cold february days with a hard wind

    i rocked a 5/3 with 3mm booties and gloves and it was definitely manageable. hands got cold after 2 hours or so but thats about it. id absolutely get a thicker suit than 3/2 for jersey winters
