Estadísticas de Olas para Back Strands, febrero: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Back Strands that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February. It is based on 2102 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. 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 W, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SW. 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 35% of the time, equivalent to 10 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 7% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Back Strands is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Back Strands about 35% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 25 days with waves in a typical February, of which 10 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.
