Got my van kitted out with an 11kW instant water heater, 44 litre water tank and an external shower connection so I just spray hot water down the wetty. Very nice. Also get changed in the van with the 1.6kW air heater blowing!

The way I see it is that I am old so need this sort of thing.

Go to scarborough, North bay and go in Lowbrow Surf which overlooks the bay. Friendly chaps will help you out. For my money, Scarborough area is the friendliest place you can surf. Getting VERY crowded now, but most are well behaved.

Best...

live near the beach, get a good waterproof cover for the car seat, drive home in wet suit and peel it off in the shower: bit embarassing if you cant park outside your house and if you live with someone they do complain about sand in the bath; but it works for me: but then I am a GIRL
maybe this year I should hunt out my purple buffalo circa 1992....I may look for my fleecy ronhills while I'm at it.

Hey. I am new to this so may sound stupid, but at what water temp do you consider cold? ....I live in new jersey water temp right now is 62 f. I have a 3/2 full suit, would I be a bit of a pus if I were complaining? :-D

That's 17 degrees in proper money. About as warm as it gets in the UK in midsummer, and most folk surf a 3/2 or slightly thicker, so yes, puss if you complain. Winter here water temps are around the 7-10 deg range.
