Nothing beats summer in Sydney! 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 - jackets/vest and lycra. (Check out our Autumn/Spring guide for more neoprene coverage).

Jackets / Vests:

We seriously recommend you try a mates Hyperfreak 1.5mm TB3X Long Sleeve Jacket or just do yourself a favour and stump up the extra cash for one, they are genuinely, absolutely next level for comfort. It’s like you’re not even wearing a top, but you skip the sunburn and rashes. Should be at the top of the Xmas list from the missus or ya mum.

An inside tip - the Hyperfreak NeoSkins is a total game-changer if you’re looking for sun and rash protection, and a bit of padding under your chest, rather than warmth.

If you’re on a budget, the Defender Long Arm Wetsuit Jacket is a very comfortable all-rounder option, plus it's reversible with some great colour combos.

For classic style and the heat that only sun on Smoothskin neoprene can provide, the vests in our O’Riginals series are the real deal, and we’ve been doing them longer than anyone.

Lycra:

Skin protection is nothing to take lightly. But lathering up suncream all over the upper body can be a huge hassle especially if you’re frothing to get out there. Sydney summer sun can pack a wallop, luckily we’ve got plenty of options to suit anybody.

Our Skins range, in particular the Skins Long Arm Crew, is the best option for overall Sydney sun protection and to guard against rashes, if you like a form-fitting rashie. If you’re more a tee in the surf kinda guy, we’ve got some different options for you, our favourite at the moment is the new O’Riginals Surf Tee (arriving August 2020). Lightweight, good fit, in a marle fabric made for surfing.


No matter what you’re wearing up top, our board shorts and slackers have got you covered for performance and style down below.

 


Check out the AUTUMN/SPRING recommendations for further suggestions if you feel the cold more or you are leaning towards cooler 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.

"Its all about the TB3X Hyperfreak Jacket. Flexibility and enough warmth plus reef and sun protection. Also the NeoSkins jacket, is a gem that works really well in the height of summer or on a boat trip to the tropics with the lads."
