Los Pechos Swell Statistics, Julho: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Los Pechos that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal July and is based upon 2976 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ENE. 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 90% of the time, equivalent to 28 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal July but 72% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 72%, equivalent to (22 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Los Pechos is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Los Pechos about 90% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 6% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical July, of which 28 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.
