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.

The Defender 3/2mm is a great all-rounder. With a thermal liner to keep you warm, the Defender keeps the water out, and the heat in. Whilst not quite as flexible as the Psycho One or Hyperfreak, its comfortable, durable and incredible value for money - perfect if you already a good 4/3mm for winter.

The Psycho One is top of the range for boys. Very warm and flexible with fully sealed seams, hydrophobic outer fabric and Firewall liner, so you stay drier longer inside the suit. Similar for warmth, the Hyperfreak 4/3+ 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.

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 this time of year. 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 Steameris the most affordable option, without as much stretch/comfort/warmth 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.

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

"When the water temperature starts to change between the hot/cold seasons, I prefer to use a wetsuit that is versatile for every weather condition. I choose to wear the Hyperfreak 4/3mm or the 3/2mm version. Both have amazing flexibility and keep you warm. I also like to have a set of ninja 3 mm boots on too which match the Hyperfreak perfectly - warm and flexible!"
