Careneros Point Break Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Careneros Point Break that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 7765 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WNW. 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 82% of the time, equivalent to 75 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere winter but 27% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 27%, equivalent to (25 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Careneros Point Break is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Careneros Point Break about 82% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 17% of the time. This is means that we expect 90 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 75 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.
