wetsuit for northern hemisphere spring summer

« on: February 19 2014 06:02:00 »

Hi want to invest in a wetsuit but as it is a big investment, i wanted to see if it could cover a variety of trips! For example this year I am hoping to go to the following: April: capetown;  May weekend: portugal or /morocco; August: France or portugal. Would a 3/2 do for all of thesee?

And while at it - apart from capetown the others are not booked, any advice on the may and august ideas? I high-lvel beginner (ie standing and taking waves, but turnnig and timing still alot of work!)...As they are only weekends / week, Europe is kind of the limit -and canaries...

A 3/2 would be fine for France and Portugal, but I dont know about Cape town and SA. In morocco you will need a wet suit in the north but not in all the country, its probably best to check to check the water temp average in the place that your going. When your in portugal check, its basicaly got all the info you need to know about surfing around lisbon. Have a good trip it sounds epic
