As i am looking at MORE SNOW here in Mass. I am wondering if anyone uses wetsuit socks and if so...any recommendations?

    Depends on your boots/liners. Almost impossible to wear extra in rubber. With dbl vapor boots and liners my feet are ok. With dbl HO XMax I used to wear a pair of Nike Dryfits for a tiny bit of psychological warmth.

    Fair point...I use Radar boot in the front and Radar RTP

    I am not nearly that tough. I wait until it is warm enough to not need socks.

    We just wear our snow boots on the water when it is snowing

    I can't remember which brand I got. Maybe from a diving/surfing website? They work OK but as @ALPJr said they will not go into rubber Wileys. They fit nicely into my Radar Profile front. Its a little tricky jamming it into the RTP because I put the sandpaper stair-tread stuff in there so my foot doesn't slip. It is also a bit snug, but it works OK. If it is that cold you probably aren't going after a PB.

    I was ready to see a pic of @eleeski wearing sandals

    @Chef23 I would probably wear them until the water hits 80 :)

    I did use some last year I got from @perfski but I had my old ho blast ski. It has not even been nice enough to try them with my vector boot so I cant really be much help.

    #3 in the top ten signs the water is frigid:

    Most Dive Shops sell thin rubber booties that work really well under liners for hardshells. Won't work with rubber to rubber at all.
    Loving the Reflex Supershell with R Style Rear and NRG with CG Fin.
