Caleta de Cabello Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Caleta de Cabello that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year. It is based on 33204 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 illustrate 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 happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NNE. 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 6% of the time, equivalent to 22 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 1.8% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.8%, equivalent to (7 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Caleta de Cabello is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Caleta de Cabello about 6% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 68% of the time. This is means that we expect 270 days with waves in a typical year, of which 22 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.
