All of the graphs for the surf breaks presented on are on the same scale to enable comparison between locations around the world.

Drummond Point water temperatures peak in the range 19 to 21°C (66 to 70°F) on around the 1st of March and are at their minimum on about the 12th of September, in the range 14 to 16°C (57 to 61°F). The warmest Drummond Point water temperatures at the beginning of March require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Drummond Point 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 Drummond Point.
