Corpus Christi 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.

Corpus Christi water temperatures peak in the range 28 to 30°C (82 to 86°F) on around the 21st of August and are at their coldest on about the 5th of February, in the range 16 to 21°C (61 to 70°F). Year round warm water temperatures at Corpus Christi climb to their maximum in mid to late August. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The coldest Corpus Christi water temperatures at the beginning of February require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Corpus Christi 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 Corpus Christi. Refer to our detailed weather forecasts for this information.
