Estadísticas de Olas para Ile des Deux Cocos, Todo el Año: 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 year. It is based on 34628 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was S, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ESE. 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 17% of the time, equivalent to 62 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 6% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 6%, equivalent to (22 days). Taking into account the proportion 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 17% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 59% of the time. This is means that we expect 277 days with waves in a typical year, of which 62 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.
