Gueque Water Temperature Graph

All of the graphs for the surf breaks presented on are on the same scale to enable comparison between locations around the world.

Gueque water temperatures peak in the range 28 to 30°C (82 to 86°F) on around the 18th of March and are at their lowest on about the 12th of July, in the range 23 to 27°C (73 to 81°F). Year round warm water temperatures at Gueque climb to their warmest in the third week of March. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. Gueque water temperatures are always warm but dip to their lowest in the second week of July. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Gueque 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 Gueque.
