Estadísticas de Olas para Isla Uvita, Invierno: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Isla Uvita that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 7765 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 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 frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was ENE, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WSW. 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 80% of the time, equivalent to 73 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere winter but 25% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 25%, equivalent to (23 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Isla Uvita is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Isla Uvita about 80% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 20% of the time. This is means that we expect 91 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 73 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.
