Ahh, summer on the North Island... We recommend a 3/2mm steamer, or for the height of summer, you may be happier in a Long Arm Springsuit.

Our preferred 3/2mm steamer for summer is the Defender 3/2mm.The Defender 3/2 has glued and blindstitched seams, MeshSkin chest/back panels and SuperGrill liner to help keep the water out and the heat in. The Hyperfreak 3/2+ is our stretchiest and lightest steamer, not as warm as the defender but seriously comfortable, worth every cent if you can afford the extra.

For the less frequent surfer, theReactor II 3/2mm Steamer is a good value for money option featuring wind-resistant Smoothskin 3mm neoprene on the chest and back, and Ultraflex neoprene on the arms and legs, but lacks the stretch and warmth of higher-end wetsuits.


Or in the warmer parts of summer pick a Reactor II Short Sleeve Springsuit.


If you are lucky with the water temp or don't feel the cold as much you might get away with just lyrca at certain times, but generally you'll need neoprene.


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

Check out the autumn/spring recommendations for further suggestionsif you feel the cold more or you are leaning towards cooler conditions.

"To stay in the water for long enough for a good session during summer, you'll want to be in a 3/2mm steamer. At the peak of summer I often wear just a short arm 2mm steamer."
