Cap Sim Swell Statistics, Novembre: 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 November. It is based on 2793 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NNW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the N. 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 75% of the time, equivalent to 22 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 7% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted 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 75% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 22% of the time. This is means that we expect 29 days with waves in a typical November, 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.
