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

Mancora Water Temperature Graph

All of the graphs for the surf breaks presented on are on the same scale to enable comparison between locations around the world.

Mancora water temperatures peak in the range 22 to 29°C (72 to 84°F) on around the 24th of February and are at their lowest on about the 4th of September, in the range 17 to 23°C (63 to 73°F). Mancora water temperatures are always warm reach their maximum in the fourth week of February. You'll need a 2mm neoprene top or a shorty at dawn/dusk or if it's windy. The lowest Mancora water temperatures in early September require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.

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