Cabo Ledo 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.

Cabo Ledo sea water temperatures peak in the range 27 to 31°C (81 to 88°F) on around the 5th of March and are at their minimum on about the 31st of July, in the range 20 to 23°C (68 to 73°F). Year round warm sea water temperatures at Cabo Ledo climb to their highest at the beginning of March. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. Cabo Ledo sea water temperatures are minimum at the end of July. Surfers should use a 2mm long sleeve shorty or a 3/2mm spring wetsuit if the wind is up.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Cabo Ledo 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 Cabo Ledo.
