Gomoda 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.

Gomoda sea water temperatures peak in the range 26 to 29°C (79 to 84°F) on around the 6th of August and are at their minimum on about the 1st of March, in the range 15 to 18°C (59 to 64°F). Year round warm sea water temperatures at Gomoda climb to their warmest in the first week of August. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The minimum seasonal sea water temperatures at Gomoda at the beginning of March 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 Gomoda 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 Gomoda.
