Water temp in the Cape in January

howdy all

i will be surfin in the cape in Early March. Some of the time around Capetown and Western Cape and then also the Eastern in J - Bay. What wetsuit would you recomend? is it 3/2 Steamer or can i get away with a Springsuit for both?

Apologies. Title should have read Water temp in early MARCH.

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.
