It depends mostly on your water temp. CO, I imagine, can have some cold water, even in summer. Check that out, then do yourself a favor and google things, like "cold water safety" and "cold shock"...

Take a look at the cottage builders. Donek and a few others offer toned down alpine decks intended for soft boots. BX boards would be a decent choice, too, and may be more versatile if you end up...
