El Paraiso Swell Statistics, Aprile: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at El Paraiso that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal April and is based upon 2640 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 represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common 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 44% of the time, equivalent to 13 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal April but 28% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 28%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that El Paraiso is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at El Paraiso about 44% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 56% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical April, of which 13 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.
