Default surfing in extremely cold water

Hi

I regularly do windsurf in winter when the water temperature is about 3-5 C. I noticed some burst on the bottom gelcoat. (wood)

Had anybody such experience?

Nope..
I'we done winter windsurfing in Denmark (temperatures around zero) on wooe boards for years and didn't have such experience.
3-5 C is not freezing and shouldn't affect the laminate. Anyway air temperatures below zero can teoretically give problems if the laminate contains a little water and the board stays in the low temperature for longer periods..

thanks, I will get a new gelcoat from the authorized dealer, I ask him to put regular thickness instead of the "limited finish" thin layer.
