Estadísticas de Olas para Gerickes Point, febrero: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Gerickes Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February and is based upon 2440 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the S. 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 49% of the time, equivalent to 14 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 2% of the time in a typical February, equivalent to just one day but 35% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 35%, equivalent to (10 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Gerickes Point is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Gerickes Point about 49% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 40% of the time. This is means that we expect 25 days with waves in a typical February, of which 14 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.
