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

This image shows only the swells directed at Gerickes Point that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal 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 show increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, 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 biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common 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 3% 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 ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Gerickes Point is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Gerickes Point about 49% of the time and that surf is blown out 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 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.
