La Lancha 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.

La Lancha water temperatures peak in the range 28 to 31°C (82 to 88°F) on around the 30th of July and are at their coldest on about the 10th of March, in the range 22 to 25°C (72 to 77°F). Year round warm water temperatures at La Lancha climb to their highest at the tail of July. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. La Lancha water temperatures are always warm but dip to their coldest in early to mid March. 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 La Lancha 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 La Lancha.
