Beginner needs wet suit advice-lessons in WA

I'm just about to finish building my kayak and am ready to get some of the accessories. Actually, the first "accessory" I need is some instruction. If anyone knows where I could get some lessons near Port Angeles, WA or on Vancouver Island, B.C. in the near future I'd appreciate hearing about that too. Reading books and looking at the BB is seems that a Farmer John wet suit is the way to go. Any advice as to types or brands for a PFD, wet suit, top, and boots? I believe the water here is aound 50 degrees and overheating isn't too much of an issue...even in summer. I'd like to stick with quality stuff.

Thanks
