Is Arenas Water Temperature and Wetsuit Guide

(Sardinia, Italy)

Statistics for 15 Jul (1981–2005) – mean: 23.8 °C, range: 22.1 °C to 26.8 °C

Sunny with very warm air temperatures, feeling like 29 °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.

Below is a graph of Historical Sea Surface Temperature for Is Arenas. This has been derived from analysis of two decades of oceanographic satellite measurements of nearby open water. We have calculated the average water temperature variation around the year as well as the extremes that have been observed on each date.

Is Arenas 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.

Is Arenas sea water temperatures peak in the range 24 to 28°C (75 to 82°F) on around the 17th 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 sea water temperatures at Is Arenas climb to their maximum in the middle of August. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The minimum sea water temperatures at Is Arenas 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 Is Arenas 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 Is Arenas. Refer to our detailed weather forecasts for this information.

 

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
