When those waves are cold enough to start breaking off pieces of your hair, it's time to get a Body Glove Vapor Hooded 5/4/3MM Wetsuit. Made from 100% vapor flex water repellent neoprene, the Vapor Hood 5/4/3 literally hates water, and with the help of 100% fluid seal seams, thermofiber (for warmth), and vaporlock seams, this puppy will never let you down. Body Glove also installed Tatex kneepads, and a front zip entry for awesome flexibility. If polar bears needed wetsuits, they'd buy a Body Glove Vapor Hood 5/4/3.

Winter Surf!By A Sims in Hancock, MI on 04/23/2010
I surf Lake Superior year round but mostly in the winter storms with the ice chunks. I've been in the 30-35 degree water with 10 degree air temp for 5+ hours at a time and still never gotten cold.
This wetsuit makes it a enjoyable experience rather than a frostbitten, hypothermia hell. People call me crazy all the time but with the right gear, it's not even remotely bad at all.
Even though I don't have much experience, fellow riders get cold often but I don't feel a thing. Being 5/4/3mm thick, it's more flexible than a 6 or 7mm wetsuit which is suggested for the Great Lakes. This is tops in my book
