    I'd say May. It varies year to year, but sometime during the month of May you can switch over to the 3/2. Definitiely no gloves in May.

    70 boardies. 66-69 spring or short arm full. 59 degrees and up 3/2. 56-58 3/2 with boots. 52-55 3/2(a good one) or 4/3 and gloves and boots. 52- below the heavy stuff. That's what I follow.

    i never wear a hoodie just grow your hair out and u will be okay on the head. but the thing i follow is 70+ boardshorts, then 65-70 boardies and a wetsuit top, then below 64 or so depending on air and what not i will wear a top or just my suit. then below 60 i bring out the 4/3. 55-50 4/3 with booties and gloves and same for all the other temps. but this year when we had the freak snow down at wrightsvill beach as i live in the south east i wore a hoodie. buyt if its not snowing i will not wear a hoodie. but its up to you if you want a hoodie or what not.

    Dude, you're gonna get surfer's ear you crazy mongoose!
    But the air temp dictates what you wear more so than the water. My opinion.

    but you live in wrightsville beach, thats why you dont wear a hood. You would would want one if you traveled north.

    I only wear a hood when the air's cold though, so really I'm not much better...
