San Miguel - Areias Swell Statistics, Dicembre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at San Miguel - Areias that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal December and is based upon 2953 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SW. 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 9 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 4% of the time in a typical December, equivalent to just one day but 17% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 17%, equivalent to (5 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that San Miguel - Areias is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at San Miguel - Areias about 30% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 40% of the time. This is means that we expect 21 days with waves in a typical December, of which 9 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.
