Palanga 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.

Palanga sea water temperatures peak in the range 13 to 22°C (55 to 72°F) on around the 9th of August and are at their lowest on about the 19th of February, in the range 0 to 4°C (32 to 39°F). The maximum Palanga sea water temperatures in early to mid August require something like a 3/2mm fully sealed wetsuit. The lowest sea water temperatures at Palanga mean that you will need a flexible 6/5/4mm wetsuit or a well fitting 5/4mm wetsuit with gloves and 5mm neoprene booties and a hood to surf here in the third week of February.

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