Estadísticas de Olas para Ilha do Farol, noviembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Ilha do Farol that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November and is based upon 2867 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the N. 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 3% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal November. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Ilha do Farol is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Ilha do Farol about 3% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 9% of the time. This is means that we expect 4 days with waves in a typical November, of which 1 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.
