I was in at asseteague for a couple hours of horrid surf. No gloves and no boots. At first i was like, "man im an idiot" but I would say after about 10 mins i really warmed up. It may have been because i was wearing a 4/3 and it just warmed up my overall body. i have no idea, but after the initial shock it was fine.
go for it tjist i have faith in you
I surfed OCMD saturday for a couple of hours in a 3/2 without boots or gloves. with the warm air it was fine after 5 minutes. Nobody in the water where i was wore gloves
