El Jadida sea temperatures are always warm reach their highest in early September. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy. The coldest seasonal sea temperatures at El Jadida in the fourth week of February 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 El Jadida 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 El Jadida.
