What thickness wetsuit?

Hi,

Can anyone recommend what wetsuit to take to postugal for october? I have a thin summer suit and a 5/3 steamer, but I can only really take one. What do you think? Cheers

a 3/2 should suffice, otherwise a 4/3

RE: What thickness wetsuit?

Well, my summer suit is a full suit but it's only a 2/1 so would you recommend the 5/3?

I'd prefer to take the 2/1 cos its lighter to carry all that way (from the UK) and easier to get dry etc. but there's nothing more annoying than having to leave good surf and head for the beach cos you're getting cold!

Anyone think a 2/1 would be too thin in October?

(I'm planning on surfing west coast to if it's on, have heard its a bit colder than the south coast.)

Looking for surf spots in Portugal ?
