Beach Road 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.

Beach Road sea water temperatures peak in the range 19 to 21°C (66 to 70°F) on around the 28th of January and are at their lowest on about the 17th of July, in the range 14 to 16°C (57 to 61°F). The maximum Beach Road sea water temperatures in the fourth week of January require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit. The lowest seasonal sea water temperatures at Beach Road in the middle of July 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 Beach Road 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 Beach Road.
