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.

Avon Pier water temperatures peak in the range 26 to 28°C (79 to 82°F) on around the 25th of July and are at their lowest on about the 1st of March, in the range 14 to 19°C (57 to 66°F). Year round warm water temperatures at Avon Pier climb to their warmest in late July. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The lowest seasonal water temperatures at Avon Pier at the beginning of March lend themselves to a 4/3mm wetsuit or a 3/2mm suit and 3mm neoprene boots.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Avon Pier 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 Avon Pier.
