You should have no problem in a good 3/2 (that is , a decent 3/2 with front and back smoothie neoprene), at any time of the day, without booties.

That's coming from someone with poor circulation in their feet

I would also go the OT route, bring a hood and some boots just in case of upwelling.

Boots are a given, getting in and out on the low tide in the cold is not fun. A hood is not a bad idea in case it's just too cold for me.

Water where I surf is currently 81F btw. I will be cold.

I suppose it can vary a little depending where you are in So-Cal, but April, with 60* + everywhere, I would never get a 4/3.

a 3/2 with a hood gives you a 4/3+.

It's mid March. Spring started today right?

That means springsuit and booties! Somebody please post the springsuit and booties photo. Wasn't that your bro CAsurfer? Keenfish will have it.

How about a bloated leaky longjohn and a beaver tail?

I don't remember the water ever being that cold like these temps and those you guys were talking about last year. Never. The last wetsuit I owned was a '79 bodyglove full suit zip up the back and I never remember being miserable cold. What's up with that.

Water is still around 80 here but will drop to 75 or so with upwelling from the new swell.

Brukies take what you got don't waste your unborn child's collage fund on a wetsuit you're gonna use how many times? Don't listen to these pansies. Especially B5F.

Also might have an old 4/3 I could let go if you wanna pay shipping. I wear either MS or LS depending on the brand.

The average 3/2 is half as thick as the old 3/2, soaks up water like a mop after af ew sessions, and feels like a wet tshirt with any hint of wind. Lots of crappy suits sold at a high price.
