    I thought I felt my name called LOL


    5/4/3 or a 6/5/4 will do you fine in the winter. I like HyperFlex Suits I have found them to fit me best and hold up really well . Plus 100-200 cheaper than you name brand suits .

    And they are super warm

    But for right now enjoy trunkin it while you can

    LOL yeah I hear that

    Mitts are warmer cause they keep all you fingers closer together and that help you get the most radiant heat out of your body in the glove. 5 mil mitts , 7mil boots and you'll be fine

    I prefer the hood to be attached to the suit . Less cold water flushin that way

    not sure which OC you mean...

    water temps in OC, Maryland last winter got down to the upper 30's. air temps in the 30-45 range is typical. A hooded 5 mil wetsuit is what you need. 5 mm booties and gloves are adequate. Some go with the 7 ml. booties and mittens. I find that **** too clumsy.

    Yeah..I like thicker boards with all that rubber. 2 1/4" in the summer, my winter boards are 2 1/2" Guys who can paddle into anything dont seem to need the thicker boards.
