I've done that in Long Island (well the air was 38C - 39C; though a bit inland, not right at the beach; I assume the same must be true in southern California. Refreshing, but after a while it still feels too cool; beach temperatures at 25C are much better.

SST would be about 24-25C: warm enough not to feel chilly when first getting in, but also refreshing enough to cool you down.
Temperature around 77-82F / 25-28C.

SST of 70-75F / 21 - 24C.

Mostly cloudy / partly sunny skies.

Moderate - high humidity, around 50 - 75%.

A strong sea breeze creating decent-sized (but not dangerous) waves.

Try 38C/101F with a water temperature of 16C/61F. That's what it was on July 30, 2006 at Park Point in Duluth, MN. The cold water made the air temperature feel a LOT lower when you got out of the water.

Ideal beach weather is around -40F/-40C to 32F/0C. Below -40 is too cold to stroll along the beach. Above 32 the ocean thaws and snowmobiles can't be used, so no fun.

Have anyone swum in the Arctic ocean on a warm day? It's doable with a wetsuit.

Although a bit amusing, you have a point there. For wintertime those conditions would be good, like in my own dream climate, but I'd prefer my water in the form of a frozen lake.

I live close to the North Sea and i do like to spend some time here on sunny days.
My ideal (summer) beach weather is about 23 to 27C outside and a water temperature of 20 to 22C, so its good for a swim.
