Statistiques de Houle pour Acapulquito-Costa Azul, Décembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Acapulquito-Costa Azul that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal December and is based upon 2953 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NNW. 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 40% of the time, equivalent to 12 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal December. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Acapulquito-Costa Azul is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Acapulquito-Costa Azul about 40% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 3% of the time. This is means that we expect 13 days with waves in a typical December, of which 12 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.
