Some awesome surf out here today, chest to shoulder high peaks, and tested my extremely thick 7 mil suit. It actually wasn't that bad, it was unnecessary, but I didn't die from overheating as the water was about 61 degrees. It was actually fairly.stretchy. I'll stick to my 3/2 for awhile until probably November, then ill throw the fur coat on. Just never used a suit that thick before. Anyone else take Gabrielles gift of waves for granted?
