    my buddy says he could surf in the current water temp and get 5 rides without a wet suit. who agrees that it would be slightly impossible????

    maybe if your buddy is on crack. his body would be so numb, he wouldnt be able to function. It doesn't take very long for hypothermia to set in, so after 20 minutes his core temperature would drop significantly and he would be endangering his life.

    I think it is possible. You run out, catch the first waves that come along, then come back in. However you will start to go through hypothermia and it would really suck. Make sure you get it on video.

    if i were you, I would make a large wager that this guy cannot catch 5 waves in trunks right now.
