What Wetsuits and Wave Size

Hi All,

a 3/2 full wetsuit is fine

Hi Mark, a 3/2 is good enough for sure. In regards to size it all depends on the area but in general you will not get much bigger than 5' unless there is a crazy swell that comes in....let me know if you need any more help as Im based here. Have fun, take care

I would say that it depends on the person and where you are heading for surf... I have a 4/3 and alows me to stay more time in the water..

Be aware that Peniche, Ericeira and Carcavelos, for me are the coldest waters to surf in Lisbon

Looking for surf spots in Portugal ?
