Laundromats 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.

Laundromats water temperatures peak in the range 25 to 28°C (77 to 82°F) on around the 25th of July and are at their lowest on about the 1st of March, in the range 11 to 17°C (52 to 63°F). Year round warm water temperatures at Laundromats climb to their maximum in late July. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The lowest water temperatures at Laundromats at the beginning of March are ideally suited to a 4/3mm wetsuit + 3mm boots, although a 5/3mm wetsuit may be preferable for longer sessions and cold windy days.

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