Thoughts on going with out a wetsuit today at 3rd?

It's going to be 75 outside and I only have a 5/4.

Third isn't really the type of place you want to get stuck swimming in at with no suit. I would say just put your suit on... if you know the tides, location, winds then you could obviously stay closer to the beach but if you're rocking a surfboard and headed to the channel I would bring the suite.

Shorty maybe but I think zero neoprene at 3rd might be higher risk than it appears...

Thanks all! I got 3 solid days in at 3rd Ave in a week. I also got to see 2 run away kites dragging their masters at the launch site and met a whole bunch of cool people who always are there to support whenever needed. 3rd Ave crew rocks!
By the way, if anyone needs an epic kite trip for the winter, you must go to Mui Ne, Vietnam. OG 3rd Ave founder Trang Tran runs the Windchimes Kiteschool there. Wind every day, great food, super cheap (nice room across the street from beach for $6/day and great pho for $1) and cool scene. Trang will take care of you too. Check out the vid I made from trip last year.
