El Roque 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.

El Roque sea temperatures peak in the range 22 to 24°C (72 to 75°F) on around the 12th of September and are at their minimum on about the 21st of February, in the range 18 to 20°C (64 to 68°F). El Roque sea temperatures are always warm reach their warmest in the second week of September. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy. The minimum El Roque sea temperatures in mid to late February require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at El Roque 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 Roque.
