Across the NSW North Coast, Autumn from March to June will still have quite warm water temps but air temps will be getting a little chilly. Reverse for Spring, with late September to November having cold water with air temps getting warmer. 

 

Having a Spring Suit variation or two in your neoprene quiver will have you covered through these unpredictable transition seasons.

 

Our top picks? 


You can't beat the Hyperfreak series for complete freedom of movement. They are hands down the most comfortable suit you will ever surf in thanks to their TB3-X Neoprene. Check out the Hyperfreak Short Arm Steamer, the Hyperfreak Long Arm Springsuit and the Hyperfreak Short Arm Springsuit.

 

The Defender series also has these spring suit variations covered, and while not as ridiculously light and flexible as the Hyperfreak (nothing ever has been) still awesome all-round performers. It’s a warmer series than the Hyperfreak, at a lower price. The best options here are the Defender Short Arm Steamer, the Defender Long Arm Springsuit and the Defender Short Arm Springsuit.

 

If you feel the cold more than others, or are surfing closer to Sydney you might prefer the added warmth of a full steamer, such as the Hyperfreak 3/2. At the other end of the spectrum, if you're not so bothered by the cold, or are surfing closer to Byron Bay then further towards summer you might be ok with just a good wetsuit jacket such as the Hyperfreak 1.5mm TB3X Jacket. See our Winter or Summer recommendations for further suggestions here.

 

It just depends on what’s most important to you - warmth / flexibility / price.


 

Check out the WINTER or SUMMER recommendations for further suggestions if you are leaning towards colder or warmer conditions. Prefer a BACK ZIP? Most Psycho and Defender wetsuits come in both chest zip and back zip options, though to keep this brief, we only feature the chest zip versions on this page.
