I’m now off booties and into hoods, as it’s the preferred combo for the NCSD core surfer.

thinking 3mm hooded feral is in my future.
3mm hooded feral works great up here in OBSF, I think I'm going to order another one as my 3 year old one is starting to give way

Being an aging kook. I keep the hood on until the water hits 60 mainly because it keeps earplugs in.

it's a very popular look these days. I just can't do that. Still not really used to hood, usually pull the hood down unless it's freezing. So booties (and ear plugs) before hood.

yeah, 3mm.
was eyeing these 2mil on sale from that Colby+ link someone posted earlier.
these 4mm might be overkill here but are a pretty good price. https://colbyplus.com/products/4mm-boots
