Statistiques de Houle pour Iztapa, Août: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Iztapa that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical August. It is based on 2976 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 show increasing swell sizes and highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SE. 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 53% of the time, equivalent to 16 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal August but 39% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 39%, equivalent to (12 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Iztapa is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Iztapa about 53% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 47% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical August, of which 16 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.
