    Thinking about hitting up New Inlet in OBX this weekend if the winds are favorable. What can we get away with in the water now. Hoping to go in just a 4/3 with Booties and thats it or at least just a thinner glove

    OCMD this weekend. Someone tell me I can wear my 32 boots and gloves. Hate the 43 and do not want to wear the rubber of my 543. Holla

    I was just down there, the water has really warmed up. I wouldn't even bring a wetsuit. I wouldn't lie to you, bro.

    Was in a 4/3 no boots, no gloves this morning at WB. If I had a 3/2 I'd start wearing it.

    depends what your used to. if your used to cold water 3/2 and nothing else should do. if you ain't a yankee, and cant handle the cold better bring your 6/5/4 and quicksilver warming vest

    Yeah but WB is like 62-63 degrees. I wore a 3/2 with boot slast weekend at Topsail and was a little cold but not too bad for 2 hours and water was 56 and air around 63.
