Estadísticas de Olas para Double Island Point - North Coast, febrero: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Double Island Point - North Coast that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February. It is based on 2664 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was ESE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the E. 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 36% of the time, equivalent to 10 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 1.8% of the time in a typical February, equivalent to just one day but 34% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 34%, equivalent to (10 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Double Island Point - North Coast is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Double Island Point - North Coast about 36% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 10% of the time. This is means that we expect 13 days with waves in a typical February, of which 10 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
