We have calculated the average water temperature variation around the year as well as the extremes that have been observed on each date.

Figuera 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.

Figuera sea temperatures peak in the range 25 to 28°C (77 to 82°F) on around the 26th of February and are at their coldest on about the 21st of September, in the range 21 to 22°C (70 to 72°F). Year round warm sea temperatures at Figuera climb to their highest in the fourth week of February. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. Figuera sea temperatures are coldest in mid to late September. Surfers should use a 2mm long sleeve shorty or a 3/2mm spring wetsuit if the wind is up.

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