Below is a graph of Historical Sea Surface Temperature for Engabao. This has been derived from analysis of two decades of oceanographic satellite measurements of nearby open water. We have calculated the average water temperature variation around the year as well as the extremes that have been observed on each date.
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.
Engabao sea temperatures peak in the range 23 to 29°C (73 to 84°F) on around the 4th of March and are at their minimum on about the 8th of September, in the range 19 to 24°C (66 to 75°F). Year round warm sea temperatures at Engabao climb to their highest in early March. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The minimum Engabao sea temperatures in early to mid September require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.
Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Engabao 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 Engabao. Refer to our detailed weather forecasts for this information.
