El Golfo Golf Statistieken, Hele Jaar: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at El Golfo that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 33212 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the NNE. 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 11% of the time, equivalent to 40 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 1.6% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.6%, equivalent to (6 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that El Golfo is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at El Golfo about 11% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 52% of the time. This is means that we expect 230 days with waves in a typical year, of which 40 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.
