A Ver o Mar Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at A Ver o Mar that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 34628 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, 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 30% of the time, equivalent to 110 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.1% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds we calculate that clean surf can be found at A Ver o Mar about 30% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 67% of the time. This is means that we expect 354 days with waves in a typical year, of which 110 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.
