Sunny with very warm air temperatures, feeling like 25 °C once we account for any wind. Sea temperatures (24 °C) warm too. Staying warm in the water won't be a problem in board-shorts, but wear at least a rash-vest to keep the UV off.

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

Dumps sea temperatures peak in the range 26 to 28°C (79 to 82°F) on around the 11th of September and are at their minimum on about the 13th of February, in the range 24 to 25°C (75 to 77°F). Year round warm sea temperatures at Dumps climb to their highest in the second week of September. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. Dumps sea temperatures are always warm but dip to their minimum in the third week of February. 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 Dumps 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 Dumps.
