A hot and sunny day, feeling like 31 °C even after we account for wind, and very warm water temperature (27 °C) too at TTs. Surfers may need a thin summer wetsuit or at least a rash vest to block the UV.

Below is a graph of Historical Sea Surface Temperature for TTs. 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.

TTs 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.

TTs water temperatures peak in the range 28 to 30°C (82 to 86°F) on around the 1st of March and are at their minimum on about the 5th of August, in the range 22 to 24°C (72 to 75°F). Year round warm water temperatures at TTs climb to their warmest at the beginning of March. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. TTs water temperatures are always warm but dip to their minimum at the beginning of 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 TTs 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 TTs.
