Igueste de San Andres Swell Statistics, Spring: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Igueste de San Andres that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere spring. It is based on 6580 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NNE, 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 18% of the time, equivalent to 16 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.0% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere spring, equivalent to just one day but 17% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 17%, equivalent to (15 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Igueste de San Andres is quite sheltered from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Igueste de San Andres about 18% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 2.0% of the time. This is means that we expect 18 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 16 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.
