Venus Bay 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.

Venus Bay water temperatures peak in the range 19 to 21°C (66 to 70°F) on around the 1st of March and are at their coldest on about the 1st of September, in the range 15 to 16°C (59 to 61°F). The highest Venus Bay water temperatures at the beginning of March require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit. The coldest seasonal water temperatures at Venus Bay at the beginning of September lend themselves to a 4/3mm wetsuit or a 3/2mm suit and 3mm neoprene boots.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Venus Bay 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 Venus Bay.
