Janzour 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.

Janzour sea temperatures peak in the range 26 to 29°C (79 to 84°F) on around the 23rd of August and are at their lowest on about the 1st of March, in the range 15 to 16°C (59 to 61°F). Year round warm sea temperatures at Janzour climb to their warmest in the fourth week of August. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The lowest seasonal sea temperatures at Janzour at the beginning of March lend themselves to a 4/3mm wetsuit or a 3/2mm suit and 3mm neoprene boots.

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