hello
as you can see I live in poland so the weather start to shows the first signs of winter. Last time when I was riding on neighboring lake I started to feel cold. Hmmm... it's a really sad news. But as any other addicts I need to ride as long as it can be possible. So my question is:

what was the coldest water temp. you've ride in and how you were suited?

coldest for me 3°C water 3°C air.
Too cold to have fun....

It was a semi-drysuit, gloves, mask and shoes.

Now I ride the Prolimit with the frontzipper. Nice and warm.
But I don't go out in air temps under 8° anymore.

And here we were, all thinking that hell would be warm...Anyway, here in Denmark we sail even when there's slush-ice in the shorebreak, and snow in the air - this can be done with a viking spirit in any semidry with windproof clothes over, or in style and comfort with a drysuit, f.ex. the Pyro from Ocean Rodeo (that'll cost you about the same as a good semidry). Feel free to email me for a qoute on one :wink:

Hi!
in water temp of 5-6°C it's no problem with a 5/4mm wetsuit (titanium).
I usually only ride when the air temp is above 10°C...
Have fun
