Did NJ yesterday without gloves and it wasn't preferable, but it was doable. Boots are definitely still required.

and the story gets even better...after using my gloves and booties on saturday (for the first time) i must have left them on the ground near the car while getting out of my wetsuit and drove off without picking them up. so yesterday, i went out with NO gloves or booties, and while it was cold (not so bad for hands, but feet started to hurt) i managed to last an hour before bailing. if anyone happened to pick up my gloves and booties off of ocean avenue in avon on saturday, i'll promise you a lifetime of good karma if you let me know.
usually i only feel like an idiot in the water, but after doing something that dumb, i've felt for an idiot for a couple of days now.
