Espinho Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Espinho that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 8476 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 largest 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 longest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the N. 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 33% of the time, equivalent to 30 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.1% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, equivalent to just one day but 8% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 8%, equivalent to (7 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Espinho is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Espinho about 33% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 63% of the time. This is means that we expect 87 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 30 days should be clean enough to surf.

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.
