Yeah but the urine is heating the water in the suit.The water temp of the ocean is cooling the urine in the suit.
I dunno but given the temperatures you speak of, feel free to pee on people if they're on fire.My good winter suits usually dont let any water in at all. I sometimes take it off and have almost no water on my body or hair. However if my suit has a small leak or does let water in, once I pee in the suit the **** gets cooled by the water from the ocean and ends up making me colder than had i not pissed in the suit.
Not sure if this happens to anyone else.
1 more vote for peeing as soon as its on.
On a side note, I think pissing in your suit on a really cold day, only makes you colder. People have told me "i cant wait to pee in my suit". But on super cold days, if i pee in my suit the pee makes me colder on the inside because its wet in there.
Does anyone disagree?

Both paragraphs above are complete bullshit.I had a urologist tell me that kids that grow up surfing a lot of hours have weak bladders. Because they are used to peeing whenever they feel the slightest urge. Holding it strengthens things.
I have no idea. I have read that in some shark infested areas surfers will NOT pee in their suits on the theory that urine contains minute quantities of blood which attracts sharks. I'm not sure I could do that.
