Below is a graph of Historical Sea Surface Temperature for Porto Corsini. 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.
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.
Porto Corsini water temperatures peak in the range 24 to 28°C (75 to 82°F) on around the 30th of July and are at their coldest on about the 1st of March, in the range 11 to 12°C (52 to 54°F). Year round warm water temperatures at Porto Corsini climb to their warmest at the tail of July. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. At its coldest at the beginning of March, low water temperatures at Porto Corsini are suited to a 5/4mm or 5/3mm good quality wetsuit with neoprene gloves and 3mm boots. You will need a hood if it's windy or the air is cold.
Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Porto Corsini 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 Porto Corsini.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has stated that a magnitude 8.2 Earthquake beneath the Sea of Okhosk did not generate a destructive Tsunami. However, we suggest that local interests also listen for statements from the Japan Meteorological Agency, located much closer to the source.
