has anyone tried going out in a 3-2 lately? my 4-5 was run over and rendered useless a few weeks ago and i havent gone since then. im waiting for it to get a little warmer, and then ill bust out the 3-2, but i dont know when that will be, so im just wondering if anyone has tried the 3-2 lately, and if so, let me know how you faired.
We were out Sat and my friend needed to try out a new board and all he has is a 3/2. Had 5 mil boots and gloves on also. He was a little cold but once sitting on the board with the sun out got warmed up quick. I had a rash guard in the car that is 1 or 2 mil on the front and back which I think also helped over top of his 3/2. Nobody was wearing a hood.
Wore a Psycho Freak 3/2 all winter. The water got to around 37 for a low. I wore 5mm Xcel Drylock booties & 5mm O'neil Heat gloves. I started out with a 3mm Xcel hood, but I went to a Hyperflex Squid Lid because the Psycho Freak was really trapping the heat.
On my coldest days, the air temp was anywhere from low 30s to low 40s with light winds.
haha thank you, everyone. i got a kick out of all these responses, i was laughing pretty hard. im going to throw on a vest under the suit and just do it. i have all the accessories, so i dont think ill have a problem. it is a decent 3/2 after all, so i will be ok. thanks again for the advice and the laughs!
