I think in general the majority of Paddlers don’t surf so a wetsuit would be inappropriate unless they intend to fall in a lot. A simple layering system works best with a windproof and waterproof outer. Or kayak touring cag with salopettes or waterproof leggings. A wetsuit will give you the chills if you fall in and there is a slight breeze. Windchill will be your biggest enemy, also over heating if you wear to much not to mention lack of mobility! Good article though!

Agreed…. if I fall in I am going to go home quickly. If its too rough to stand up or I am beating against the wind or side wind then I will be on my knees so I don’t fall in.

Anyone try the seasonfive clothes? Wondering if they are warm enough for winter?
