    well, i was plenty comfy in my 3/2 w/ 3mil boots & 1.5mil gloves for about 2 hours. took a couple sets on the head & wished i had a squid lid, but that was the only time. after 2 hours, i ran out of warmth & fun, pretty much simultaneously.
    i'll keep the 4/3 out for those cooler days, but if the water gets much warmer, deff. won't need it. there were guys out w/out gloves today.

    its a 6'2 Ashton bat tail quad. The waves were really weak but fun especially cause the who stretch of beach near my dads place hasnt been breaking for years and is now.

    Nice, a bat tailed quad huh? How come I have never heard of that board in your quiver? Is it fishy shaped, and how thick is it?

    Water Temps!

    I am still surfing in a 5-4-3. I dont care how hot it is outside when you duck in 43 degree water it is serious ice cream headache. Although this time of year is very decieving with water temps still low and air temp super high. I will be down to a 4-3 on friday. I hope we get some good ones!

    For what it's worth...

    New to the forums and a complete novice but been lurking here for a long time. I was out in Monmouth county today from 4:30 till 5:45ish in a 4/3 hyperflexx flow with 3 mil gloves and 5 mil socks with no hood. It was very comfortable and I didn't feel at all cold. Admittedly though I have a good amount of natural insulation. If I can get out Friday after work I'll probably bring a hood.
