Below is a graph of Historical Sea Surface Temperature for North Shore Breakers. This has been derived from analysis of two decades of oceanographic satellite measurements of nearby open water. We have calculated the average water temperature variation around the year as well as the extremes that have been observed on each date.

North Shore Breakers 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.

North Shore Breakers sea water temperatures peak in the range 26 to 29°C (79 to 84°F) on around the 8th of August and are at their coldest on about the 1st of March, in the range 19 to 20°C (66 to 68°F). Year round warm sea water temperatures at North Shore Breakers climb to their warmest in early to mid August. Even then a rash vest and board shorts should be fine for surfing at any time of year. The coldest North Shore Breakers sea water temperatures at the beginning of March require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit.

Actual sea surface water temperatures close to shore at North Shore Breakers 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 North Shore Breakers.
