blown out
73%

John Caldeira from Fiji
“The website shows bad data for Fiji water temperatures. The real temperatures vary from approximately 75F to 85F. NEVER below 70F.

[Editor replies: John, you have confused Fiji, the surf break in Namibia, with Fiji, the Pacific Island. The sea temperatures for both are correct]”
