Cap Sim Swell Statistics, Febbraio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Cap Sim that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February. It is based on 2440 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 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 biggest 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 74% of the time, equivalent to 21 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 12% of the time (3 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Cap Sim is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Cap Sim about 74% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 25% of the time. This is means that we expect 28 days with waves in a typical February, of which 21 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.
