5054RE: [ksurfschool] What wetsuit for what water temperature?
- Nov 5, 2004Niki,
I live in Houston too, and here's my concept:
Water temp 70-80....shorty
Water temp below 70....either a 4/3 wetsuit or an Ocean Rodeo dry suit; the
benefit of the dry suit is it's not constricting at all (except at the
ankles and wrists and neck), there's no shock of cold when entering the
water, and it's comfortable enough to wear on my drive to Texas City. It is
more expensive (about double a good wetsuit). Charley at windsurfing sports
has both and you can talk with him about concepts (281-299-9199); tell him
Dr. Steve sent you. Have fun on the water!!

Subject: [ksurfschool] What wetsuit for what water temperature?
I just started this summer in Houston and until now I did not need a
wetsuit, because the water temperature was around 80F just a week
ago. With the "cold" front it is dropping now to 65F and maybe
lower... I was wondering if those of you who have had experience
with wetsuits can share what is a comfortable suit - meaning the
lightest and least constricting possible for different temperature
