Esterillos Oeste Swell Statistics, Agosto: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Esterillos Oeste that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical August and is based upon 2480 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either 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 largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WSW. 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 58% of the time, equivalent to 18 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal August but 41% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 41%, equivalent to (13 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Esterillos Oeste is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Esterillos Oeste about 58% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 42% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical August, of which 18 days should be clean enough to surf.

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.
