  Experience level?

Most people paddling surfskis and training hard to race don't wear much immersion protection because you will sweat so much. In a dry suit this will be really unpleasant. In a wet suit you can throw some water onto your chest, arms and legs and cool down. But if you are not very experienced you will be capsizing a lot. In near freezing water you would need a pretty thick wetsuit. Are you sure about those water temps in texas? If the water is really that cold minimun would be a 4/3 wetsuit, and you are going to sweat to death racing in that. I would check with local surfski paddlers and see what they use.
