Off to Hossegor in Sept, wondering what sort of wettie I should take. Been told a vest and/or rashie will be fine as still warm enough for boardies, but all Youtube vision of Sept has people in steamers. Greateful advice.

I've been living in Hossegor for 15 years. Water can still be in the 20°C/70°F range in September. Mornings (when offshore) can be a bit chilly. If you've got room in your bag, bring a long sleeve vest, a spring suit (short or long arms) and a 2/2 or 3/2 full. September is one of those months where you never know what the weather will be like, so best be prepared for anything! Water will often be a degree or two warmer if you head down to the Basque Country to surf the reefs and points...
