I'm not a surfer, I was hoping someone could give recommendations for a wet suit top though.
I'm going to the caribbean in february and water temperatures are 78/79f. USVI message boards are lit up with complaints that it's unusually cold this year (I'm from NY though so 78 is probably wonderful).
Anyway since I want to swim/snorkel as long as possible, I thought it couldn't hurt to pick up a wet suit top and just bring it along. I don't know where to start really. These looked ok:

I don't know if I'll be dying of heat exhaustion in one of those in 78 degree water. I was thinking of getting a "rash guard" too, but hear they don't do anything for you heat-wise.
Any info would be really helpful,
