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

This image shows only the swells directed at El Zunzal that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical April and is based upon 2880 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 red represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, 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 44% of the time, equivalent to 13 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal April but 29% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 29%, equivalent to (9 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that El Zunzal is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at El Zunzal about 44% of the time and that surf is blown out 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.
