Statistiques de Houle pour Isla Uvita, Janvier: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Isla Uvita that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical January and is based upon 2620 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either 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 largest spokes, was ENE, whereas the the dominant 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 85% of the time, equivalent to 26 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal January but 34% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 34%, equivalent to (11 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Isla Uvita is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Isla Uvita about 85% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 15% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical January, of which 26 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.
