    today some chick (hot) parked in front of me changed into her underwear bottoms under a towel, then was bent over in just her bottoms and a long sleeved T 30 degrees out tops w/ a brisk wind, rummaging around looking for something in her car for like at least 5 minutes. The takeaways from this story is a) its December and I got to scope some nice ass and b) you are a non-hacker who needs to quit surfing

    practice a quick exit....get the car started....have a over sized hoodie and fleece pants ( the only time the are acceptable) the slippers with the fuzz inside, I'm used to extreme hot and cold, so its no biggie for me.......sometimes ill change in the passenger seat, I have a sweet 4 door hatch back, so with the seats down I can function in the back....or eff it, I'll be so stoked that I'll just take it down standing there.............besides, not to many people are out especially when theres snow coming down..........

    keep the body moving..........you stay still, your body shuts down.......

    Hot water

    I agree with the hot water jugs in the cooler. Load that thing up too, as much bottles as you have. You don't need to create some crazy science experiment, but it's a lot more enjoyable to surf in the winter if you don't have to suffer for the ride home as your toes and fingers slowly thaw. The nice thing about the cooler is that you can just toss the now empty bottles in your trunk and stash your soaking wetsuit gear in the cooler so it doesn't mess up everything else. I also bring an extra towel and set it on the ground. Use the first bottle to rinse the sand off your legs/booties. It's not essential, but the post-surf cleanup is a lot easier if you eliminate the sand ahead of time. Plus your toesy's will thank you for not having to hobble around on frozen gravel/concrete.

    To those who like to "tough it out", good on ya. Maybe it's the age factor, but I'd rather be comfy when possible, especially if it only takes a tiny bit extra effort. The tough factor does help on those occasional cold-water trips, though. I did a road trip up in Northern California a few years back, and surfing low 50's water with only a campfire to warm oneself afterward...it's a whole new experience. I'm sure the habit of "toughing it out" on a regular basis might come in handy during times like that.

    I live like 10 minutes away from the beach so I just hop in my car get home and jump straight into the shower. I get warm and I clean my suit at the same time, but if im pretty far away from the house I'll change outside. Ill turn the car on turn the heater on and close all the doors ill put a towel on the ground wrap a towel around my waist and take the suit off. Its actually not that bad the only ****ty part about taking your suit off after a cold surf is the dexterity in your fingers are kinda shot so its a battle getting the suit off. So I suggest you buy a pesticide sprayer from lowes or home depot and fill it up with really hot water so the moment youre done with your session you have a hot shower on the go set up.

    if the surf is good and i know for sure, i put it on at home

    if it's questionable, on in the car

    almost always take it off at home in the shower, unless the sun is out and the wind isn't too blustery. taking it of fin the shower also help sclean the suit.

    i seriously hurt myself trying to get the legs of the suit over my feet. it's the hardest f**king thing in the world. i am going to invent something like an oversized shoe horn to slip in the leg of the suit and pull it out of the feet. anyone else have this problem?

    Fun story (I'm sure I'm not the only one...). My first true cold weather day was January 2004 in OCMD. There was ice all over the inlet parking lot from a recent blizzard. Long story short...I didn't plan ahead and was physically incapable of opening the car door with my f#%$ed up numb fingers. I was driving this old Volvo at the time that required a bit of ummph to turn the key, and I just couldn't do it. I tried using my palms, teeth, everything. Not to mention it was about 20 degrees with a slight offshore breeze, so I was getting worse by the minute. Finally I asked some random guy to help me, which he did with a slight chuckle. Keep in mind this was after freezing for a solid 20 minutes because the whole area was basically deserted of people. By the time I got in the car, I still couldn't turn the key in the ignition, so I called the guy back and asked for "the last time, I promise!" He was super cool about it, and I must have thanked him a half dozen times. Anyhow, I realized I was in no shape to drive, so I sat there wet and cold until the blasting heat finally warmed me enough to drive the 30 blocks home and sit in a scalding hot bath for the next hour.

    Lesson learned.

    if its too cold to change just drive home with your suit on, sitting on a towel. its warmer in your car than in the water.
