I am about ready to replace my ancient Kokotat and really like the idea of the surf drysuit for all-around (kiting, windsurfing, SUP) use. My only concern is whether the suit is a lot hotter than a regular bag drysuit in moderate air temperatures. I want to use it for winter paddling in cold water when the air might be in the 50s (10-15 Celsius) and am concerned that I might just get too hot unless I jump in the water frequently.
Anybody have experience doing non-surf paddling in the surf drysuit? Is it a lot hotter than a pyro pro or other breathable bag suit? Thanks for any help!
