Do you need wetsuit to surf in Las Canteras from late September to late October?
Also, do you think booties are a must?
Yip, the water gets cooler quickly towards the end of October so you’ll need a wetsuit.
I’ve only seen a few people wearing booties (<10%) and I’ve never felt like I needed them for warmth even though the winter.
Any website which tells me how high the waves currently are at a given beach?
Here’s the link to the live webcam of La Cicer.
