El Coco Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at El Coco that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 7765 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NE. 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 69% of the time, equivalent to 63 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere winter but 25% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 25%, equivalent to (23 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that El Coco is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at El Coco about 69% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 2.0% of the time. This is means that we expect 65 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 63 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.
