    HEY... WONTON IS BACK!!! Welcome back little buddy.

    An Aguaholic those pics are gnarly... Where is that, Looks like somewhere in the arctic. I wanna see huge frozen waves like that, i bet they would move so slow, slow motion barrels, sounds like my kinda scene, except for the whole 20 degree water thing.

    38 ya....no. haha maybe jersey. not much of the east coast below new york gets below 40 very often.

    The water in DE right now is 37. 37! Evidently there was one of those polar bear plunge things this past weekend and they announced 37 degree water. Sheezus. Need a pretty nice swell for me to paddle out in that sh*t.

    what people dont understand is the fun we get out of freezing our butts off in the water. also they think when you first step in your already cold. Not your fine for warmth and dryness in the suit until you duck dive or fall over thats when it gets cold. but a little hint and i dont know if yall already know this but put duck tape on where your gloves and sleeves of wetsuit meets it works. same with ankles.

    The duck tape option never occured to me, is it that much better? It makes sens actually because my gloves are hour or so usually have some water in them which pisses me off. They are pretty tight too and under the wetsuit sleeves.

    Anyway, might look a little funny but ****, in 40 below water I'll try that and see whats up.
