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 3/2mm has fully sealed seams and firewall liner, so you stay drier inside the suit, while the Hyperfreak 4/3 has glued and TB3-X taped seams and no firewall liner, but is the stretchiest most comfortable suit we’ve ever made. You can’t go wrong with either, they’re world-leading surf wetsuits. Chest zip is available in both, and a Zen Zip option in the Psycho One ( way better than a normal back zip ).

Special mention also to the Defender Full 3/2mm which is comparable for warmth, and still very comfortable, 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, your warmest option in the water is the Psychotech 3/2mm. We think the 4/3 is 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.

For crew who like to chuck on booties, we’d highly recommend the lightweight Ninja Booties.

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

 

 

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

"When picking a suit for the Sydney winter, it would have to be one of the Psycho Series in a 3/2. I always lean towards the Psycho One, as it is not only warm, but incredibly flexible and fits like a glove. If you are a person that gets cold easily, or plans on heading south, the Psycho Tech will be your go to."
