i surf a 3/2 with 5ml hood & lobster claws and 3ml boots through the dead of winter...
right now still is trunks and a sleeveless vest
I've done that at least two winters of Delaware / MD surfing when the water never got below 45 and the weather wasn't brutal cold when there were waves. The hood was attached to a hotskin vest. It was totally doable FOR THOSE WINTERS. NOT for others. Its mostly about quality equipment...the 3/2 has to be decent with sealed seams, tight openings and fit properly..and attitude...and making the drops.
