El Silencio Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at El Silencio that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 28044 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 the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the S. 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 5% of the time, equivalent to 18 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 1.1% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.1%, equivalent to (4 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that El Silencio is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at El Silencio about 5% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 95% of the time. This is means that we expect 365 days with waves in a typical year, 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.
