  • Couple of guys out yesterday in 4/3's no boots/gloves. Better men than me - I may give up the gloves very soon, but I'm keeping the boots a little longer.

    Was back out today in my 54 with 7ml boots and 3 ml gloves. Boots were overkill. Could have surfed w no gloves. Suit, had the hood off and probably could have gone 43, but didnít mind the extra warmth.
