Well Matt that depends on which side of the peninsula you surf.

At Cape Point the insanely cold Atlantic and the warm Indian Oceans meet. I'd recomend a 3/2 for the Atlantic side.
But that's only one side of cape town. The other side and J-Bay Eastern Cape will be alright.

Looking for surf spots in South Africa ?
