Mocambique 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.

Mocambique water temperatures peak in the range 24 to 28°C (75 to 82°F) on around the 28th of February and are at their coldest on about the 13th of August, in the range 16 to 20°C (61 to 68°F). Year round warm water temperatures at Mocambique climb to their maximum in the fourth week of February. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The coldest Mocambique water temperatures in the third week of August require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.

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