    Water temps & wetsuit

    All I have is a shorty. I'm not used to surfing in water temps < 65. How late do you guys go into the year before breaking out the full suit? I surfed a couple weeks ago with water temp. around 68. The temp where I want to go this weekend is closer to 60. Thanks!

    I surfed last weekend in CB in spring suit and it was pretty chilly. I imagine this week is going to be fullsuit time.

    Full 3/2 is good for 68 down to 55 any lower and a 4/3 is reccomended for long term exposure.Really all depends on how long the session and what your body can handle. Everyone has different tolerances.

    yea, hold on to her. A 4/3 should be good through Christmas. When it gets really cold in late january through march, you are going to want booties and gloves, but those are alot cheaper than a suit.
