YOUR WETSUIT FINDER RESULTS
Wetsuit recommendations for surfing South Australia during autumn or spring? Autumn from March to May still has relatively warmer water temps but the air will be getting colder. Reverse for Spring, with September through November having cold water with air temps slowly warming up. We recommend a lighter weight steamer for these shoulder seasons, and we also like a pair of booties in the mix this time of year.
Our top autumn/spring picks for the steamer quiver are our Psycho One 3/2, or Hyperfreak 3/2+.
The Psycho One has fully sealed seams, TB Firewall and hydrophobic TB3 neoprene, but focus on this suit is slightly more towards flexibility rather than warmth in the details, so it’s a perfect transition steamer (the Psychotech is opposite with focus more on warmth rather than flex).
If you want unmatched flexibility, the Hyperfreak 3/2 has it, and GBS + TB3X taped seams plus TB3 body panels will keep you snug, and it is the stretchiest, most free feeling option out there.
Depending on whether you feel the cold more or less than most, the Hyperfreak 4/3 could be a good option for a transition steamer that will still be warm enough pretty deep into Winter.
For a solid value option, the Defender 3/2 is still perfectly warm and flexible with GBS seams and SuperGrill liner, for anyone on a tighter budget.
For booties, we recommend the Ninja 3mm boot to keep the toes nimble!
It just depends on what’s most important to you - warmth / flexibility / price.
