wore a 3/2 all winter in vb, you dont last as long, but with a hood, gloves, booties, on and a well fitted suit, water didnt get into my quicksilver syncro. Im wearing another 3/2 but its an infiniti x zip so no doubt ill be warmer than last winter. The water gets lows 40's and i think last year it got into the high 30's. But ya, i could do 2 hour sessions when it was colder than 30 outside airtemp and howling offshore winds. and all day sessions when its above 40 airtemp,( i run up to my friends beach house and fill up with hot water in between sessions.) But its do able. Its not as bad as you guys might think.
