Cloudbreak 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.

Cloudbreak sea temperatures peak in the range 27 to 30°C (81 to 86°F) on around the 8th of February and are at their minimum on about the 21st of August, in the range 24 to 26°C (75 to 79°F). Year round warm sea temperatures at Cloudbreak climb to their highest in early to mid February. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. Cloudbreak sea temperatures are always warm but dip to their minimum in mid to late August. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy.

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