Esterillos Oeste Swell Statistics, Ottobre: 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 October. It is based on 2480 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 show increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest 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 56% of the time, equivalent to 17 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal October 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 ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Esterillos Oeste is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Esterillos Oeste about 56% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 43% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical October, of which 17 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.
