    you can probably get away with a 3/2 in mid/late april with boots. yet i really can't decide what water temperature will be good for you to wear a 3.2...

    I was warm as hell this weekend though in 5/4/3, even though it was 50 and sunny. i took my hood off a few times.

    when its time for me to downgrade to 3/2 suits the hood has been gone for a while. After I shed my hood its usually still a couple of months in the 4/3 before i downgrade but thats just me. Alot depends on the air temp as well. If your jonesin for a surf and dont want to get away with buying a 4/3 this season you could possibly get away with a 3/2 when the water gets in the 50's if you have good gloves and boots and the air is warmer.

    Obviously Chill

    I was out his past Sat. and it was pretty chilly with the full 5/4 wetsuit. Lots of Tweens outs, lol :) and they could also prob agree...it was chilly with the wind chill. Nothing like Jan though.
