    Smile Time to Shed Some Rubber?

    I know the water temp is still low, but I got out yesterday just to goof off in a 3/2 but still with gloves/booties/hood combo.. wasn't a bad 2 hours!

    Keep these air temps up and pretty soon we'll be able to lose the hoods... but not quite yet!

    What does the temp have to be to go out with 3/2 and booties and gloves?

    Anything warmer than the last few months... whenever it feels good enough to lose a layer

    No hoods!

    I am not sure where you guys are from, but in delaware we dropped the hoods and the mils! My set-up now is 4/3-3 mil boots, 5 mil gloves and a couple guys had 3/2's on. The sun has been cooking with these west winds. I do believe the water temps are behind schedule and still seasonably cold.

    Whatever you're comfortable in. Some people have a tolerance for the cold, others don't. If you try it, and you're fine... Surf in a 3/2 with boots and gloves. Less restriction. If you're cold. Put the 4/3 or 5/4 back on.
