Estadísticas de Olas para Ixtapa Island, diciembre: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Ixtapa Island that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical December. It is based on 2953 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 shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NNW. 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 68% of the time, equivalent to 20 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal December. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Ixtapa Island is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Ixtapa Island about 68% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 31% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical December, 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.
