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

This image shows only the swells directed at Ixtapa that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal 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 illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant 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 arise in a normal December. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Ixtapa is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Ixtapa about 68% of the time and that surf is spoilt 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 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.
