Ok people, serious question & topic.
I'm heading off to colder waters for a surfing holiday soon, going from a place with a winter water temperature of 14 degrees celcius -where I can happily do winter in a quality 3/2 steamer & nothing else to an area which has an almost year-round water temperature of 10 degress celcius. I grew up in the area I'm going to and know what colder water is all about, been there -done that.
Now, this time round I'm doing it in winter, I havn't owned or needed booties for 5 years or more and this trip I'll need some for sure.
Question: Are 2mm, well made, well sealed around your ankles, reef booties a suitable "in between" alternative to a full-on shin length bootie ?
I tried some on today and they look perfect...all the booties I can find are like tramping boots. And I don't want to surf in tramping boots unless I really have to...
Your input will be appreciated.
