When I bought my suit, the oneill mutant (one in pic) I was told I could only go till about Januay. I didn't have any other suit so I used it the whole winter. It was warm enough, but the hood stinks, and it is only a 5/3. So, I have the ripcurl e-bomb youth in mind. Does anyone have any other reccomendations?
i know you're further north, but i can't imagine the water gets too much colder there than it does here, mid-upper 30's, on average. i've always been fine in a 5/4. if you think that's too thin, then try a 6/5/4 from whatever brand you prefer. also, a few companies have been making 5.5/4 or 5.5/4.5mil suits these last couple years. might be worth looking at those thicknesses as well.
