Thread: what wetsuit

  1. #1

    what wetsuit

    hey guys thought I would ask some of you from around my area what for wetsuit I should look into buying. I was thinking of like a 5mm shorty or should I get a full wetsuit. I am right below lancaster PA and was hoping to get into the water in another month or two but the water is still gonna be freezing so i wasnt sure what all I should get.

    You dont htink I would be ok with a 2/3 shortyand some gloves and shoes? My arms and legs really never get cold. As soon as its warm out I just wear my swim shorts.

    I think its still going to be a bit too cold for a shorty. I picked up a 3 full suit and a 3/2 shorty. I usually wear the full suit in the cold, and slippery pants instead of the shorty in warmer. I dont ride in board shorts unitl the heat of the summer and the water feels refreshing, not cold. Definitely good bootys, mine are 8s, and I have 5 gloves. extremeties get cold first. I would gof or a full suit, or maybe a john if you are shopping around for the first time. I should have bought a john and jacket instead of a full suit.

    I have a shorty that I use when the air or water a slightly cold. I just picked up a 3/2 with sealed seams and some 3mm booties. I talked to a couple guys at local surf shop who are hard core surfers and they said the sealed 3/2 would be sufficient march til november (which is when i ride anyway). Plus when you are on a ski you aren't submerged as much as when you are in the water surfing
