"i just cant wait for it to get alittle warmer cause no money and all i got is a 4/3 right now",..
Did you look into getting one of those heat retaining hot skins, where it under the 4/3; On a sunny day with fairly lite winds, and a nice swell that will keep you moving, you might just be ok for a couple of hours, its got to be a good 4/3 though.
The water temps seemed to have moderated, or maybe we are just getting use to it,..again.
I had to get a hot skin to augment my one year old 5/3 thats crapping out already. I also got some epoxy goo from the hardware store and painted or filled two pair of used gloves, saved some money and they worked great this last swell. My 6/5/4 boots are still holding strong, very warm. I am going to get a new 5/4/3 for next year, (if I am still around) since I am getting older and also feel the cold on the bones a little differently now. I guess the point you could make for this is if you got the right gear, and can handle your face freezing on duck dives, you really can go out and score invigorating winter swells.
"but most people can't find any logic behind going out to their car when the air is in the 20s much less, get in 37 degree water with 20 degree air...."
Even most of the core are not going to either, unless the conditions are right. If it is proper, you know that once you start dropping in and getting the goods, it kind of warms up some.

god yeah, i find myself on this site more times a day than any other site. also i like the winter because of the lack of kooks and such, but i hate february... its so damn cold. im not a cold person, and i cant take the cold very well so its tough to work it out during these weeks. anyone know what i can do to make my 5/3 warmer? i think someone mentioned a heat thingy, not too sure what that is tho; never seen it.
i actually hit this site up much more in the winter than summer cause im here in philly for school in the winter and cant wander over to the beach like in the summer. plus, i like these forums when the BS is gone
