Estadísticas de Olas para Isolators, Primavera: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Isolators that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere spring and is based upon 8724 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 illustrates biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, 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 longest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SSW. 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 22% of the time, equivalent to 20 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 1.3% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere spring, equivalent to just one day but 7% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 7%, equivalent to (6 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Isolators is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Isolators about 22% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 77% of the time. This is means that we expect 90 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, 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.
