OK So I have made the decision that I am gonna try and balance some surfdays with some ski days this winter but since I am new to it, gotta ask some questions that may be repetitive to some but still.... 1. Best wetsuit to get? I have a 4/3 that I wear from Spring to mid summer and am now wearing again for Nov but with the water temp dropping I am thinking I am not gonna last with it. I also have a set of 5 mm patagonia boots and gloves. What brand or line is best. I hear a lot of good things about the Oneil Pyrotech. 2. Board wax... I always use the cold wax from Sticky bumps on my board year round in Newenglad but is there a specific wax people use? Do you worry about ice forming on the board at all? 3. Protection for your face? So I Know a hoodie is a requirement but what about the rest of your face? Is there something you put on it to protect it from the icy cold water? Vaseline or some other product? 4. I live about 35 minutes to the closest break and I know there are no changing stations. What tips do you have for getting in and out of your stuff for winter surfing? 5. How long do you usually last in the water during the winter? Sounds like a silly question I know but is the gear good enough to make it through a normal session? Thanks in advance!
