Cabo Roche Swell Statistics, Gennaio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Cabo Roche that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal January and is based upon 2620 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was W, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NW. 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 7% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal January. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Cabo Roche is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Cabo Roche about 7% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 16% of the time. This is means that we expect 7 days with waves in a typical January, of which 2 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.
