Statistiques de Houle pour Maitencillo, Toute l'Année: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Maitencillo that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 33228 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 red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing 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 22% of the time, equivalent to 80 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 0.3% of the time in a typical year, equivalent to just one day but 6% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 6%, equivalent to (22 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Maitencillo is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Maitencillo about 22% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 71% of the time. This is means that we expect 339 days with waves in a typical year, of which 80 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.
