Acapulquito-Costa Azul Swell Statistics, Summer: 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 northern hemisphere summer. It is based on 8738 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common 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 75% of the time, equivalent to 68 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere summer but 34% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 34%, equivalent to (31 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Acapulquito-Costa Azul is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Acapulquito-Costa Azul about 75% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 25% of the time. This is means that we expect 91 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere summer, of which 68 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.
