What a good time for surfing in Sydney! Autumn from March to June will have pretty warm water temps but air temps will be getting 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. (If you really feel the cold, or are shopping early for winter, be sure to go to the winter recommendations page which focuses more on full 3/2 steamers)


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 or the temperatures have dropped you might step up to a 3/2mm steamer. The Hyperfreak 3/2 is a very good pick, super light, stretchy and comfortable. For more talk on 3/2mm steamers, check out the winter recommendations page.


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.

"Without a doubt my favourite suit for autumn/spring in Sydney is the Hyperfreak 2mm short arm steamer. This thing is the most flexible and versatile suit going. An amazing transitional suit for colder days or early morning surfs, or if your feeling a bit sooky. TB3X gooey neoprene fits and feels like a second skin."
