    beards

    Will a beard help during colder conditions? I imagine not, soaked beard in 30-40F degree air

    Good question.....

    I think it would be warmer than a freshly shaved face. My guess would be yes.

    just want to make sure you dont get icicles hanging from your beard:

    Certainly, anything can serve as insulation, especially in windy conditions. But it is no substitute for good ol' neoprene.

    I have a goatee, and it doesn't do diddly when it's winter time. Maybe a trip to Rincon might help

    beards

    I had a beard last year, and it didn't keep me warmer in the water. In fact its works against you. Your hood doesn't seal as good and beard ices up. Going clean shaven this year.
