Correct Wetsuit for Torö

Hello all,

I'm moving to Sweden, Södertälje to be more specific, next year in February and I wanna know what is the correct wetsuit to Surf in Torö. I have never surfed before in very cold temperatures and I'm afraid to buy the wrong gear and waste some money.

Wetsuit: 4/3 or 5/4 ?
Boots: 5 or 7 ?
Gloves: 5/3 or 7/5 ?
Hoods? 3 ?

Thanks!

RE: Correct Wetsuit for Torö

Hey Tiago, I'm relocating to Stockholm from South Africa, around February also.

I saw somewhere that a 6/5 wetsuit is appropriate for surfing in winter in Sweden with Vaseline for your face for extra insulation :"). I'm sure a 4/3 will definitely be fine for summer and maybe also fine a month on either side of summer - that's just from my experience of what the weather was like when I was there in mid Summer last year.

I'm not sure about the thickness of the boots and hood etc. hopefully somebody posts something here.

Maybe catch a wave with you when I arrive, and do some Swedish coastline exploring! If keen, message me at feralnighthammer@gmail.com
