El Astillero Swell Statistics, Abril: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at El Astillero that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical April. It is based on 2160 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest 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 78% of the time, equivalent to 23 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal April but 42% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 42%, equivalent to (13 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that El Astillero is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at El Astillero about 78% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 20% of the time. This is means that we expect 29 days with waves in a typical April, of which 23 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.
