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

K59 and 61 Water Temperature Graph

All of the graphs for the surf breaks presented on are on the same scale to enable comparison between locations around the world.

K59 and 61 water temperatures peak in the range 29 to 30°C (84 to 86°F) on around the 11th of May and are at their minimum on about the 15th of January, in the range 27 to 29°C (81 to 84°F). Year round warm water temperatures at K59 and 61 mean that a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at K59 and 61 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 K59 and 61.
