Boots or no boots?

Boots or no boots?

What with the cold snap we are having it is likely that the water temp is going to have dropped some what before we get the next bout of wind.

No doubt there were already many pairs of windsurfing feet clad in neoprene the last windy weekend but whats the real sea temp that sees most people pulling on the booties or does it come down more to the make up of the beach and sea bed where you sail???

How many of you plan to brave it barefoot all winter ?

Me, well I have a new pair sat here and am hoping to wear em on thrusday!

cheers Jim

Once it drops below 6 degrees air temp, I find the boots unfortunatley must go on.
If you don't, your feet becomeso numb that you end up kicking the footstraps instead ofgoing into them, due to loss of feeling in your toes!
