Acapulquito-Costa Azul Swell Statistics, Settembre: 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 September. It is based on 2880 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest 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 22 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal September but 32% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 32%, equivalent to (10 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 estimate that clean surf can be found at Acapulquito-Costa Azul about 73% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 25% of the time. This is means that we expect 29 days with waves in a typical September, of which 22 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
