I actually have this theory that by varying the insulation thickness inside a drysuit, you could easily dive with it in Florida or Virginia as well. Those are classic wetsuit beaches just like SoCal.
Wetsuits work best for freediving and surfing here. And even wetsuits dont last very long. One or two years of moderate use, before they are all oxidized by the sun and ready for the trash heap. A $500 dollar drysuit would last 5 years at least. Do the math, and it comes out pretty close to the same, in terms of cost.
Tribes, you strike me as a huge, fat, fowl, rumbling behemoth. A wetsuit on you is probably redundant. What if the newby is frail and thin? Did you even think to ask him that?
Dive skins or a drysuit, that is the only real thermal decision you ever really need to make, anywhere.
