so two of my buddies and i are going to nova scotia for a month or so around the end of september through october. anyone have any idea what the air/water temps will be like and what kind of gear we should pack? obviously we've got a lot of the camping gear down but are questioning water temps and air temps around that time of year. also any insight on wave quality and consistency around that time?
Edit: not looking for names of spots to surf or any name drops, just what to expect..already know of a few good spots just haven't been there this time of year

I've only surfed the Southeast, so I can only tell you that along that stretch of coastline, the water temp changes quickly. I've surfed bareback with the water in the upper 60's one day, and needed a full suit with boots two days later. September and October are the warmest months for water temps. But it can go literally from the 60s to the 50s in the same week. Chances of surf are excellent, but like everywhere along the Northeast and New England coasts, it depends on storms.
