El Astillero Golf Statistieken, September: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at El Astillero that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical September. It is based on 2880 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ESE. The chart at the bottom shows the same thing but without direction information. For example, swells larger than 1.5 feet (0.5m) coincided with good wind conditions 70% of the time, equivalent to 21 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal September but 45% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 45%, equivalent to (14 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that El Astillero is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at El Astillero about 70% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 29% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical September, of which 21 days should be surfable.

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastal wave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open ocean.
