Haqal 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.

Haqal water temperatures peak in the range 28 to 29°C (82 to 84°F) on around the 18th of May and are at their coldest on about the 8th of August, in the range 22 to 26°C (72 to 79°F). Year round warm water temperatures at Haqal climb to their warmest in the third week of May. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. Haqal water temperatures are always warm but dip to their coldest in early to mid August. 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 Haqal 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 Haqal.
