    it says around ~65 or so. says averages range from ~62-70 during that time it seems. i wouldnt count on it but thats a ballpark.

    also i went december 20th which it says was the same water temp (although the air was around 70) and i believe i used a 5/3 instead of a 3/2 and used 3mm booties but didnt use the hood and gloves. surfed for 7 hours straight. so hope this helps. goodluck!

    for buxton-frisco april will only get as cold as mid-upper 50's,but can get much warmer,too,so bring everything from a bathing suit up to a 3/2 with thin boots and gloves.
    north of buxton's probably different/colder.
    been there at Easter time a lot.
    always waves in buxton,sometimes frisco.

    Whats the issue? Is it that big of a deal to throw an array of rubber in your trunk to make sure you are covered.
