Beliche Swell Statistics, Marzo: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Beliche that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical March and is based upon 2964 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, 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 longest spokes, was NW, whereas the the dominant 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 33% of the time, equivalent to 10 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 4% of the time in a typical March, equivalent to just one day but 29% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 29%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Beliche is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Beliche about 33% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 22% of the time. This is means that we expect 17 days with waves in a typical March, of which 10 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.
