Estadísticas de Olas para Islita, noviembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Islita that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November. It is based on 2867 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NW. 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 67% of the time, equivalent to 20 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal November but 28% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 28%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Islita is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Islita about 67% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 33% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical November, of which 20 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.
