Impossibles Swell Statistics, Outubro: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Impossibles that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal October and is based upon 2480 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SE. 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 91% of the time, equivalent to 28 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal October but 38% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 38%, equivalent to (12 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Impossibles is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Impossibles about 91% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 5% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical October, of which 28 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.
