Wetsuit Water Temperature Guide0 comments
What thickness wetsuit will I need? It's a popular question we get on our surf forum, so here's an article in an attempt to answer this. We've provided a chart with a range of temperatures, and the type of wetsuit that should be ok for those temperatures. We've included additional items of surf equipment that may be required for a little extra warmth. Keep in mind that it's a general guide only. If you feel the cold, err on the side of caution and get a thicker wetsuit.
