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.
Fossacesia Marina water temperatures peak in the range 24 to 28°C (75 to 82°F) on around the 12th of August and are at their minimum on about the 1st of March, in the range 13 to 14°C (55 to 57°F). Year round warm water temperatures at Fossacesia Marina climb to their warmest in the second week of August. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The minimum water temperatures at Fossacesia Marina at the beginning of March are ideally suited to a 4/3mm wetsuit + 3mm boots, although a 5/3mm wetsuit may be preferable for longer sessions and cold windy days.
Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Fossacesia Marina 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 Fossacesia Marina.
