Temps aren't too bad in good old blighty in September. You can get away with just a 3/2 easy (especially the southern areas). Unlike now where your wetsuit freezes solid after a session....!

I love surfing in the rain. Looks like a really fun wave, too.

Frended - don't wanna rain on your parade bro, but you need to travel and get over the Irish thing. Great place and all, but there's a whole world out there
