Escolleras Swell Statistics, Maio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Escolleras that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical May and is based upon 2200 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 the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, 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 longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing 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 60% of the time, equivalent to 19 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal May but 36% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 36%, equivalent to (11 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Escolleras is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Escolleras about 60% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 40% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical May, of which 19 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.
