San Miguel - Areias Swell Statistics, Spring: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at San Miguel - Areias that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere spring and is based upon 8682 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and red represents 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 prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the NW. 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 20% of the time, equivalent to 18 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere spring but 10% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 10%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that San Miguel - Areias is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at San Miguel - Areias about 20% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 45% of the time. This is means that we expect 59 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, 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.
