Close call today, Mr. Swell Info. The swell forecast was on the money but boy-oh-boy, the reporting of water temps nearly killed me. Thankfully, I passed on my favorite speedo swimsuit, as I sorted through my rubber gear early this morning, and brought my spring suit and .5mm fin socks. It was one nut freezing chilly water (well, both would have been frozen). A 3/2 or even a 2/1 fullsuit would have done the trick. Reading the forums was the make-or-break!
