Estadísticas de Olas para Inches, agosto: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Inches that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical August and is based upon 2976 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates largest 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 largest spokes, was ESE, whereas the the most common 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 90% of the time, equivalent to 28 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal August but 15% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 15%, equivalent to (5 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds we think that that clean surf can be found at Inches about 90% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 6% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical August, of which 28 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.
