El Coco Swell Statistics, Settembre: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at El Coco that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal September. It is based on 2880 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the ESE. 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 73% of the time, equivalent to 22 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal September but 42% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 42%, equivalent to (13 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that El Coco is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at El Coco about 73% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 26% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical September, 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.
