Acajutla Swell Statistics, Maio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Acajutla that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical May. It is based on 2200 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WSW. 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 59% of the time, equivalent to 18 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal May but 28% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 28%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Acajutla is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Acajutla about 59% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 41% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical May, of which 18 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.
