2nd Street 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.

2nd Street sea temperatures peak in the range 27 to 29°C (81 to 84°F) on around the 24th of July and are at their lowest on about the 10th of March, in the range 15 to 22°C (59 to 72°F). Year round warm sea temperatures at 2nd Street climb to their highest in the fourth week of July. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The lowest 2nd Street sea temperatures in early to mid March require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at 2nd Street 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 2nd Street.
