Estadísticas de Olas para Isla Canela, Verano: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Isla Canela that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere summer and is based upon 8738 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 represents the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the W. 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 10% of the time, equivalent to 9 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere summer. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Isla Canela is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Isla Canela about 10% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 16% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere summer, of which 9 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.
