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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Islita that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical November and is based upon 2809 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 represents the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common 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 29% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 29%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected 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 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.
