Abalone Cove Water Temperature Graph

All of the graphs for the surf breaks presented on Surf-Forecast.com are on the same scale to enable comparison between locations around the world.

Abalone Cove sea temperatures peak in the range 17 to 21°C (63 to 70°F) on around the 6th of September and are at their lowest on about the 5th of February, in the range 13 to 16°C (55 to 61°F). The maximum Abalone Cove sea temperatures in the first week of September require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit. The lowest sea temperatures at Abalone Cove at the beginning of February are ideally suited to a 4/3mm wetsuit + 3mm boots, although a 5/3mm wetsuit may be preferable for longer sessions and cold windy days.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Abalone Cove can vary by several degrees compared with these open water averages. This is especially true after heavy rain, close to river mouths or after long periods of strong offshore winds. Offshore winds cause colder deep water to replace surface water that has been warmed by the sun. Air temperature, wind-chill and sunshine should also be considered before deciding on the kind of wetsuit needed to stay warm when surfing at Abalone Cove.
