YOUR WETSUIT FINDER RESULTS
Our top picks for an all-round suit you’ll love right through a Sydney winter are the Psycho One 3/2mm or the Hyperfreak 4/3+.
Very similar for warmth. Psycho One has fully sealed seams, hydrophobic outer fabric and Firewall liner, so you stay drier longer inside the suit. The Hyperfreak has glued and taped seams and no firewall liner, but is the stretchiest most comfortable suit we’ve ever made, so the 4/3 feels as free as any 3/2 we’ve ever worn anyway. You can’t go wrong with either, they’re world-leading wetsuits.
Special mention also to the Defender 3/2mm which is comparable for warmth, and still very flexible and comfy, if you want a solid suit at a lower price.
If you feel the cold more than most or tend to surf a lot of earlies, you might look at the Psycho One 4/3mm, but most would consider this overkill for Sydney. On the other side of the scale, if you want even more flexibility and are good with a touch less warmth, go for the Hyperfreak 3/2+
The Reactor II 3/2mm Steamer is the most affordable option, without as much stretch/comfort as the higher end suits, but a worthy suit for the less frequent surfer.
For crew who like to chuck on booties, we’d highly recommend the lightweight Ninja Booties.
