Figueira da Foz - Cabedelo Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Figueira da Foz - Cabedelo that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 33204 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, 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 27% of the time, equivalent to 99 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.0% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Figueira da Foz - Cabedelo is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Figueira da Foz - Cabedelo about 27% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 65% of the time. This is means that we expect 336 days with waves in a typical year, of which 99 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.
