Estadísticas de Olas para Niton, Todo el Año: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Niton that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 34625 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 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 commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the W. 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 9% of the time, equivalent to 33 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 0.6% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Niton is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Niton about 9% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 15% of the time. This is means that we expect 88 days with waves in a typical year, of which 33 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.
