Below is a graph of Historical Sea Surface Temperature for Abras. This has been derived from analysis of two decades of oceanographic satellite measurements of nearby open water. We have calculated the average water temperature variation around the year as well as the extremes that have been observed on each date.
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.
Abras sea water temperatures peak in the range 28 to 29°C (82 to 84°F) on around the 30th of March and are at their minimum on about the 7th of September, in the range 26 to 27°C (79 to 81°F). Year round warm sea water temperatures at Abras mean that a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year
Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Abras 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 Abras. Refer to our detailed weather forecasts for this information.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has stated that a magnitude 8.2 Earthquake beneath the Sea of Okhosk did not generate a destructive Tsunami. However, we suggest that local interests also listen for statements from the Japan Meteorological Agency, located much closer to the source.
