vagina from Florida here, been in my shorty 4/3 and an NP .3mm top the past two weeks, its HOT now, water is 60's right now thou

sometimes I purposely fall in the water to cool off, bring sun block!

a 3/2 would be fine

Yeah 3/2 is good. Might be a little warm some days depending on the dam flow and air but when you are say in the park it's good since it's colder water.

From June I had a 3/2 full suit that I wore most days, and a 2mm shortsleeve shorty for when it was hot during the height of summer (July/Aug) and was comfortable all the way through late october-ish. Also have a 5/3 but only wore it a couple times toward the end of the season.
