You've got to be careful wading. I took a dive in waist waders in January. Would have drowned if someone to help wasn't there. Waist waders try to float you with your feet up and head down, so think about it. There are times when the fish are right up to the beach feeding especially at night, you'd be wading right past them and of course "spooking" them.
