Aloha friends. Headed up the north east coast in the spring and I'm taking my wingfoil gear with me on this trip. Wanted to know recommendations for wetsuit recommendations. I know it depends on what month as well, looking at May possibly April.

Headed up to Mass to southern/central Maine.

Mahalos!

April water in Maine will require 5 mil minimum, including boots and gloves and maybe a hood as well if you have to duck dive a lot. Probably more if you're from Hawaii.

I lived and surfed in MA for 10 years. I was wearing a 6 mil with boots until June. The water really doesn't warm up until July. Not sure how wet you get with a wing foil, but if you're able to stay out of the water most of the time you could get away with something lighter, but not much.

Very stiff, how much you have move in your sport? Best off getting a 6mil.
