Dive socks and Gloves too.

I also recommend having a safety whistle and signal mirror.
In summer 3mm is generally good. In winter you may need a 5mm suit.
Aim to get a belt with a quick release buckle, so you can ditch it quickly if needed.

Maybe check the spearfishing buy / sell group on FB.
Also might be worth getting in touch with the local spearo clubs, as their members may have stuff they want to sell off.

With the mask i recommend try them on before buying.
They all fit differently and the most expensive wont necessarily fit the best for you.
