Below is a graph of Historical Sea Surface Temperature for Izquierda. 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.

Izquierda 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.

Izquierda water temperatures peak in the range 22 to 24°C (72 to 75°F) on around the 12th of September and are at their lowest on about the 24th of February, in the range 17 to 20°C (63 to 68°F). Izquierda water temperatures are always warm reach their highest in the second week of September. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy. The lowest Izquierda water temperatures in the fourth week of February require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.

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