You may need them all lecky, hard to plan really. Who knows what weather you could get?

This may sound stupid, but it depends on the swell. the temp can drop around 5 degrees with a decent swell, however, i would edge on the side of a 3/2 and maybe a shorty for the rare small sunny days

Went last year in October, used a 3/2 full suit, a shorty and had a couple of sessions in boardies and a thermal rash vest.
