I was at Indian River on Friday. I counted 35 guys in the surf all with full suits (I'm guessing 4/3 for the most part. I'm very happy in my 5/4. Only one guy had a good, most others still had gloves and boots. Only a few brave (?) souls went w/out gloves or boots. Water is still 58 or 59, why risk hypothermia?

I'm in N. Monmouth County, NJ (temps ~53F). I'm no polar bear, but am seriously thinking of going to the L/S spring suit w/ a thermal layer real soon.
However, my feet get cold easy and wearing 2m boots w/ a short springy only leads to the usual "What the ----, your a kook, your a tool, etc" comments...and I really hate wasting water time taking it to the beach.
