YOUR WETSUIT FINDER RESULTS
West Oz in Autumn / Springtime.... what a great time for surfing! 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 talks even more on full 3/2 steamers)
Our top picks?
If you’re a Short Sleeve Steamer or Long Sleeve Spring guy, or even the classic Spring Suit cat, you can’t beat the Hyperfreak series for complete freedom of movement. The Hyperfreak Springsuits and Steamers are hands down the stretchiest most comfortable suits we’ve ever made.
The Defender series also has each of these spring suit versions, 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.
If you feel the cold or are further south down the coast, theHyperfreak 3/2 Steamer is a good pick, super light, stretchy and comfortable. TheDefender 3/2mm Steamer is also a solid all-round lower-cost option with enough warmth to be a backup Winter suit in the quiver.
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.
