Below is a graph of Historical Sea Surface Temperature for Swimming Pools. 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.
Swimming Pools water temperatures peak in the range 27 to 30°C (81 to 86°F) on around the 7th of February and are at their minimum on about the 21st of August, in the range 24 to 26°C (75 to 79°F). Year round warm water temperatures at Swimming Pools climb to their highest in the first part of February. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. Swimming Pools water temperatures are always warm but dip to their minimum in mid to late August. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy.
Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Swimming Pools 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 Swimming Pools.
