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

La Boya 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.

La Boya water temperatures peak in the range 28 to 30°C (82 to 86°F) on around the 9th of September and are at their minimum on about the 26th of February, in the range 25 to 27°C (77 to 81°F). Year round warm water temperatures at La Boya 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 La Boya 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 La Boya. 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.
