Sunny with very warm air temperatures, feeling like 25 °C once we account for any wind. Sea temperatures (24 °C) warm too. Staying warm in the water won't be a problem in board-shorts, but wear at least a rash-vest to keep the UV off.

We have calculated the average water temperature variation around the year as well as the extremes that have been observed on each date.

Indicas 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.

Indicas sea temperatures peak in the range 29 to 30°C (84 to 86°F) on around the 8th of August and are at their lowest on about the 1st of March, in the range 23 to 24°C (73 to 75°F). Year round warm sea temperatures at Indicas climb to their warmest in early to mid August. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. Indicas sea temperatures are always warm but dip to their lowest at the beginning of March. 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 Indicas 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 Indicas.
