Hey guys, you can say I'm on a hiatus from the waves for the rest of the fall and during winter until I get my license so I can leave this forsaken place and go down the shore in late march/april.
Now, I live in south jersey so is it safe to say that during that time the water will be in the 40s? I'm getting myself a 4/3 for sure on my birthday. I'm wondering if that will suffice until may or june when i can just trunk it like I always do.
hopefully a hood might not be necessary? dont have one haha
you will need a hood in nj. i've been wearing gloves for a couple weeks now (but i'm a p***y when it comes to my hands being cold), but only 1 session in 3mil gloves. the others were in 1.5 mils.
water gets into the mid-upper 30's in an average nj winter, but will usually start to creep back into the 40's by mid-march at the latest.
you'll prob. be fine w/ a 4/3, hood, 5mil boots, & 3mil gloves. anything less than that & i think you'll be cold.
yeah 4/3 with hood 5 mil gloves but I would get 5 mil gloves you can pretty much surf the whole winter that way. During the colder months you might be able to stay out for 2 hours at the most . I have been wearing gloves for 3 weeks now cause my joints in my hands hurt really bad once my hands get too cold.
