Statistiques de Houle pour Jiquilillo, Octobre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Jiquilillo 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the W. 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 28% of the time, equivalent to 9 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal October but 27% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 27%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Jiquilillo is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Jiquilillo about 28% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 26% of the time. This is means that we expect 17 days with waves in a typical October, of which 9 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.
