    Re: Newbie help plz!! buying guidance. TX residents welcome

    Thank you I appreciate it. I'll keep a eye out. Do you just wear wet suits to keep dry & warm?

    A wet suit won't keep you dry just as the name implies. A 3/2 mm thick one should be good down to water and air temps down to 45-50 F, depending on how much of a cold wimp you are (and I am definitely a cold wimp). A 5/4 mm suit is even warmer. Adding neoprene gloves, boots, socks, and sometimes a helmet could get you down to about 40 F. Some people will ride with air temps below freezing and all the way up to some ice forming in the water. A dry suit (expensive though) can really do the trick for those cases. Note that a standup ski is a very wet experience and if you're blazing around at 40+ MPH it's a heck of a wind chill. I try and ride at least every 3 weeks in the winter, but it doesn't get bone chilling cold here.
