    I doubt it. OC MD reads 45 in the water right now. That doesn't seem anywhere near 3/2 to me. I always play it safe in colder water. I would wait until almost 60 to shed a 4 mil. 4 mils right now really feel no different than my 3/2, so why bother. But then again, I also go from 3 mil to trunks. I wear a full suit most of the summer back east. Matter of fact, I pretty much do the same thing on both coasts. 3 mil until mid july or so. Morning water is cold.

    the buoy is in the inlet...so the water reads 50s on the outgoing tide, 40s on the incoming.

    I surfed mid town in a 3/2 today with 3mm gloves and 5mm booties. Plenty warm with zero wind and sun.

    As long as the weather is warm like today, you should be good in a 3/2 with booties and gloves of course.
