    Now, I have a question for bodyboarders...What kinds of booties do you dudes wear do deal with having fins on your feet? I bought those "entry level" H2Odyssey Booties because I was worried on how a bootie with a strap and free toes and extra rubber grip would fit under my fins.

    These booties work great for me, but like someone else said, I guess from walking around in them-especially when you got those 20 block walk-backs from those sideshore current days-that they have worn thinner on the bottom.

    i kno what you mean, my winter fins are a size larger then what i usually wear strictly for the purpose of better boots. xcel booties r great.

    Gloves, i wear the xcel 7mm drylock mittens, easy to paddle and better when holdig on to your board but every1 has a preference. hope this helped

    Your hand falling off is the least of your worries, if you know what I mean.

    6/4 does sound like a bit much...my bud uses a 5/4 and he stays very warm

    I think I found an easy solution...instead of buying a brand new winter suit, Im gonna try to use my RipCurl long sleeve 2mm springy under my 3/2 full. I have problems with the cuffs being too loose and i think that will work. The torso section is also a little loose. I will give it a try when I get some GLOVES!! I'll let ya fellas know how that goes

    I have a pair of Body Glove 5 mil boots. They have three full seasons and are still fine. Getting a little thin, but still warm. Not much rubber at all either, so they fit under fins comfortably. I can't believe they've lasted this long. And I use them alot. Was out of work the past two winters and was on every swell that came thru. Awesome boots, plenty for the delmarva winters.

    As far as Gloves go, I've had NO luck with any I've bought. Have gone thru at least 5-6 pairs in the past three years. Fingers split, or they stretch out leak. I've tried a few different kinds, but now are wearing cheaper 5mil hyperflex, that really aren't bad for the money so far, but they are starting to split.
