Estadísticas de Olas para Indian Head, Invierno: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Indian Head that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 8485 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 show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was W, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SSE. 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 47% of the time, equivalent to 43 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 5% of the time (5 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds we calculate that clean surf can be found at Indian Head about 47% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 51% of the time. This is means that we expect 89 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 43 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.
