Ahh, Summer on the NSW South Coast... Depending on the month and potential north current upwelling, you might be just boardies and some sun protection, a spring suit variation, or even back into the bloody steamer on Christmas day! But for this guide, we’ll focus on the summer staples (Check out our Autumn/Spring guide for more neoprene coverage).




A definite favourite among most girls nowadays, Surfsuits look and feel close to swimsuit, but offer more sun protection, and a little extra warmth. The Bahia Lyca Long Sleeve Surfsuit is our top choice for Surfsuits, which features our surf series print story.





The Bahia 1.5mm Full Zip Wetsuit Jacket is a great option to keep you in the water longer, protected from the sun and the wind.


If you want something that'll do you through cooler conditions, the Bahia 2mm Long Sleeve Cheeky Springsuit is a favourite. Very similar is the Bahia 2mm Long Sleeve Mid Springsuit featuring a little more leg coverage.


Something in between is the Cruise 2mm One Piece which feels like you're wearing a swimsuit, great for paddling or catching some vitamin E.





Skin protection is nothing to take lightly, and the summer sun can pack a wallop, luckily we’ve got plenty of options to stay safe.


Our Skins range, in particular the Skins Long Arm Crew, is a solid option for overall sun protection and rash protection.


If you prefer a front zip, the Bahia Long Sleeve Rash vest is stylish and easy to get on and off.



Check out the autumn/spring recommendations for further suggestions if you feel the cold more or are leaning towards cooler conditions. Or, if you need to know something specific, drop us a line for a chat...


Live in the ocean!

"Probably the season with the most variables in play due to the differing water currents and swirling winds in play. The previous few summers have demanded anything from a thin cut wetsuit top to a 3'2 steamer. As long as you have those wetsuits in your quiver you can't go wrong"
