Do I need a steamer? Lame question I know but I don't want to pack one if I don't need it. Thanks

It does feel a bit cooler with a northerly swell, but the water is warming up nicely. The pre dawn session is a bit cooler, but during the day you could get away with boardies for sure.

Soft, no steamer required.

There's still plenty of people wearing steamers around (just looked out the office window at Snapper).
