Right now at 55 to 60 a 4:3 is good. No need to get fancy with taped seams..water is warm enough for your body to warm any water that gets in through the seams.
In a few more weeks we will be in 3:2 range until about mid june. By 4th of July last summer i was in board shorts.
You should consider getting a 3:2 and layering a thermo liner underneath to give it a little extra warmth. I think you would get more use out of a 3:2 and can then use the thermo layers by them selves for cool summer morning sessions.

Does anyone have any other wetsuit suggestions for winter?
I am originally from SD, so I haven't quite learned the winter wetsuits..
Last year I bought a used POS 5/4 and it was impossible to paddle in.. I spoke to some guys in the water and they mentioned that they use a high end 4/3 year round and they are fine.
Any suggestions would be a huge help!
Thanks
You can get away with using a 4/3 but i would at least layer under it with a good polypro rash guard and shorts or invest in one with a killer liner. Either way, your (dead of) winter suit should have the most tec features and i would strongly advise one with taped seams and rubber external taping as well. It will last longer and keep you warm much longer than one without. Add to that a good insulating /quick dry liner and you are golden.
 As far as 4/3 v 5/4 if you will only ever be surfing in the winter for an hour each time then 4/3 is fine... i knew a guy who surfed in a 3/2 with a hooded rash guard but wouldn't be in the water long. If you have the time to be in the water longer than an hour in the winter then 5/4. But really the flexibility and price difference between the two are negligible so why not just go 5/4?
 
For reference my wetsuit quiver goes like this:
Summer -2/2 short arm or board shorts/polypro rash guard or just board shorts
Late September to late October.- 3/2
Late October to early December.- 4/3
January to early March- 5/4,( just upgraded to a quicksilver highline 4.5/4 3x bonded and lined head to toe + detachable hood i can use with my 4/3)
March to mid May - back to 4/3
May to mid June.. 3/2
Having a detachable hood and insulating rash guards may negate the need for a 4/3 all together or turn your 4/3 into a 5/4... they just add versatility.
I also have. Few other suits, old ones, back ups etc. One is an O'neill mutant 4/3. It's my favorite suit even though its totally clapped out and i got it in exchange for a bar of wax and good vibes. It still doesnt leak all that much and is super comfy and versatile. If you get a 4/3 i highly recommend it or adding a stand alone hood
Boots and gloves, i got away with 3mm for both all last winter. There where definitely a few sessions i wish i went with my 7mm boots but, again getting a boot with a good liner usually means you can get away with thinner rubber. My 3mm boots are xcell drylock and they are almost as warm as my 7mm.

7'4" Volan cloth with a red glue line and a 4 finger lap. With a deck  and fin patch. These pictures are from an old phone. Board looks much better in person. Just an FYI.

Still contemplating this one! Sort if a step up from my 8'6" Freespirit egg

Just boards at this time. I am aware itís limited and crappy.  I am not a tech person at all.
It will get better over time.
Rich did a good job!
You should talk to bob aka surfdoc and get some freespirit/Raymond Scott Henry surfboards in stock. Sweet and underrated hand shaped boards from a long island native

So I picked this up off of Bob,  washed it and used it once back in late December or maybe January. Plenty warm but feel its a little too snug for me. Back up for sale at $50.

Almost as legendary as the coconut huh Bob?

It should be in the 7'5" to 7'7" range. Im partial to a quad fin set up but it is not totally necessary. It must have only been used less than ten times but the dirtier it is the better!  Dont bother to post pics of it I'm trusting like that. Hopefully someone still has a board like this as it is something i have been wanting for a while. Hopefully it doesn't hurt anyone's feelings. It is all well intentioned ribbing.

I dont think that much wax would help any sale along.  People would rather list the same board week after week instead of 1)posting pics 2) cleaning the board before posting pics.
I cant believe with that amount of wax... dirty wax it has only been surfed 10 times

Some dimensions may be useful. Also maybe a location too. And how about pics or a description of each board so people don't have to go and google each board. Not everyone has a detailed library of each shapers catalog in their heads

I was camping at Hither Hills all week. Glad to see a sandbar still at my fav secluded spot. It popped up sometime in the winter/spring of 16' where there had never been one before. Conditions where shite this week but at least there is still a sand bar.

Not exactly on topic but I live in and surf Long Beach almost exclusively. Family and Work make it hard to venture out. My commute now has me out ocean parkway and up the Moses parkway for work. If anyone wanted to share some intel on where to surf along that stretch via pm I would be appreciative. Donít worry Iím not a wave hog and wonít be bringing any friends along to crowd your lineups.

I drive that every day too. There are a few spots between gilgo and the coast guard station. I don't surf there so i don't care. But if you take some time to look im sure you will find something. I keep a set of binoculars in my truck just to peep far away bars.
