Acapulquito-Costa Azul Swell Statistics, Luglio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Acapulquito-Costa Azul that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical July. It is based on 2480 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 show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant 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 73% of the time, equivalent to 23 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal July but 38% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 38%, equivalent to (12 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Acapulquito-Costa Azul is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Acapulquito-Costa Azul about 73% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 27% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical July, of which 23 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.
