Drummonds sea temperatures peak in the range 22 to 26°C (72 to 79°F) on around the 11th of April and are at their coldest on about the 12th of September, in the range 18 to 21°C (64 to 70°F). Drummonds sea temperatures are always warm reach their highest in the second week of April. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy. The coldest Drummonds sea temperatures in the second week of September require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at Drummonds 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 Drummonds.
