Ulla Water Temperature and Wetsuit Guide

(South and West Norway)

Today's Ulla sea temperature is 6.2 °C.

Statistics for 23 Apr (1981–2005) – mean: 6.4 °C, range: 5.5 °C to 7.5 °C

The water temperature (6 °C) at Ulla is very cold today and the windchill (0 °C) will make the air temperature seem even colder. You'll need a thick hooded winter wetsuit as well as neoprene gloves and neoprene boots and the cloudiness won't make it feel any warmer.

Below is a graph of Historical Sea Surface Temperature for Ulla. 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.

Ulla 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.

Ulla water temperatures peak in the range 12 to 17°C (54 to 63°F) on around the 8th of August and are at their lowest on about the 16th of March, in the range 5 to 7°C (41 to 45°F). The maximum water temperatures at Ulla in early to mid August 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. The lowest water temperatures at Ulla 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 middle of March.

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