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

This image shows only the swells directed at Ixtapa Island that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere spring. It is based on 8052 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 shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant 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 61% of the time, equivalent to 56 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere spring but 1.7% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.7%, equivalent to (2 days). 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 calculate that clean surf can be found at Ixtapa Island about 61% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 39% of the time. This is means that we expect 91 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 56 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.
