A bit of relevant background info: I'm from Florida. I don't like being cold.
But I gotta plane, I just GOTTA!
I bought a 5/4 wetsuit last week, the O'Neill Mutant with a detachable hood. I have no idea what kind of air/water temps will work good with this thing. The guy at the local shop told me it depends from person to person on the air and water temps they can handle... go figure.
And I still need to buy some gloves and thick booties. If any of my dear readers (hi mom!) have any suggestions on this front, it would be appreciated.
