Statistiques de Houle pour Chabela (Playas de villamil), Avril: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Chabela (Playas de villamil) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal 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 illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows 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 dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WSW (which was the same as the prevailing wind direction). 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 38% of the time, equivalent to 11 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal April. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Chabela (Playas de villamil) is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Chabela (Playas de villamil) about 38% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 58% of the time. This is means that we expect 29 days with waves in a typical April, of which 11 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.
