Estadísticas de Olas para Airport Lefts, septiembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Airport Lefts that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical September. It is based on 2400 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant 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 27 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 2.0% of the time in a typical September, equivalent to just one day but 58% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 58%, equivalent to (17 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Airport Lefts is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Airport Lefts about 91% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 9% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical September, of which 27 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.
