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 over a normal April. It is based on 2160 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant 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 46% of the time, equivalent to 14 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal April but 33% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 33%, equivalent to (10 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that El Zunzal is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at El Zunzal about 46% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 54% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical April, of which 14 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.
