El Zunzal Swell Statistics, Maio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at El Zunzal that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical May. It is based on 2838 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 illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW (which was the same as the dominant wind direction). 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 49% of the time, equivalent to 15 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal May but 33% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 33%, equivalent to (10 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that El Zunzal is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at El Zunzal about 49% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 51% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical May, of which 15 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
