October is Spring in NZ and what you cal cold will depend on what you are used to. In Northland you would need a thin, say 2mm steamer, but robably still a 4/3 in the south island. It still snows in the hills sdown south at that time of year and day time temps can be low, around 13 degrees. However the deep soputh, Catlins, south of Dunedin, and the Dunedin Coast is a guranteed wave, and few crowds at all. Raglan will be okay for a medium steamer, you would be best to watch the wather reports and choose your trip. Check www.surf2surf.co.nz for reposrts and cams. Gisborne will be reliable too. You wil need the camper because waves in NZ need to be followed. That time of year can also throw waves at Tauroa point up north, and you would love that mate.
