Yeah mate, its bloody cold down south in Dunedin. Ul need a 4/3 steamer at least. It gets to about 16deg I think and drops to about 7? deg during winter. Some great waves to had around the whole region there though...

If your comnig from a warmer climate I'd definetly bring a 4/3, even if your going in the summer time. As for the Autumn and winter it's boot and hood material. Surfing in  and around Dunedin is quality,  the0nightlife is good and fish & chips are cheap.

Have a good one
