We have calculated the average water temperature variation around the year as well as the extremes that have been observed on each date.

Arcadia Water Temperature Graph

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

Arcadia sea water temperatures peak in the range 22 to 26°C (72 to 79°F) on around the 6th of August and are at their minimum on about the 17th of February, in the range 3 to 8°C (37 to 46°F). Arcadia sea water temperatures are always warm reach their warmest in the first week of August. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy. The minimum sea water temperatures at Arcadia mean that you will need a flexible 6/5/4mm wetsuit or a well fitting 5/4mm wetsuit with gloves and 5mm neoprene booties and a hood to surf here in the middle of February.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Arcadia 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 Arcadia.
