    Hello,
    I am Guisseppe Slonskin. I heard the waves are going to be spectacular with a knee high/choppy surf this weekend. I am getting utterly excited. Should I wear gloves this weekend? Mine are 5/2 mm. This purchase was recently made for the cold nippy winter months that I was still in the icy water trying to grab at least some mediocre rides here and there. Just HOW good do you guys think the waves are going to be? I hope to see you, my fellow riders, in the water along side of me this weekend!

    Cheers my fellow comrads!
    Guissepee

    Let me guess. You are considered royalty in your home country, Guisseppe Slonskin. You have just inherited a large sum of money but legal issues between customs and the banks have tied up your money in the court system and you need our help. We should send you a certified check for $10,000 and you will send us $100,000 for our trouble.

    then you are one tough m-f'er...i'm not at all interested in losing the gloves until the water hits about 55 or so...i'm starting to consider down-grading the thickness of both booties & gloves, to 3mils & 1.5mils respectively, but that'll largely depend on the weather when i surf next.

    choices choices

    Wow, I am soo glad I read this thread. I was in between wearing my banana hammock or cool new Hollister "boardies" but now with the help of you guys I will wear the longer boardies and be bringing my winter gloves and black socks.
    Now all I have to decide is what board - Bic popout or Costco foamie....

    Choices...
