5. Use the Right Board
If this is your first winter in the drink, high performance should be the last thing on your mind. With your full winter armor on, you’ll be about 10 to 15 pounds heavier in the water, which means you need a more substantial board to keep you afloat. You don’t necessarily need a longer board, but a wider one will help. A heavier board is also handy for momentum with stiff offshore winds in the equation. Make sure you get a cold wax, too, that’s suited for 58°F and below.
