Estadísticas de Olas para Ile des Deux Cocos, diciembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Ile des Deux Cocos that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal December. It is based on 2705 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 both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, 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 22% of the time, equivalent to 7 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal December but 19% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 19%, equivalent to (6 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Ile des Deux Cocos is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Ile des Deux Cocos about 22% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 51% of the time. This is means that we expect 22 days with waves in a typical December, of which 7 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.
