    Just pulled out the 5 mm boots and gloves to compliment the 4/3. Looks like a small window in the morning...I'm on it though.

    It's that time of year- wear everything you got lol early January is always always questionable - depending on air temps- 4/3... or more?

    but now after the past few weeks of air temps hardly getting above 32... waters gonna be cold! Even if the bouy reads a bit warmer- think about all the inlets and other distributaries that where just frozen!! All that cold water mixing in the surf zone... At least the air is supposed to be warm tomorrow, may be able to pull off a 4/3 if it's newer...idk not me lol I will be wearing 6/5/4 ...i have found that the materials have gotten so good in the last 5 years it's hard to tell the difference when wearing a 6 compared to a 5.... except you never get cold in a 6! So I wear one from now- mid January to the beginning of march- the rest of the time in a 4/3 or 3/2. I rather spend more time in a 4/3 then being in a 5/4 the whole stretch... just my personal preference.

    And yes- 7mil boots and lobster claws or even mittens!
