El Coco Golf Statistieken, Herfst: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at El Coco that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 8724 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the E. 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 66% of the time, equivalent to 60 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere autumn but 33% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 33%, equivalent to (30 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that El Coco is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at El Coco about 66% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 20% of the time. This is means that we expect 78 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 60 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.
