Statistiques de Houle pour Prainha dos Molhes (Escondido), Novembre: Vagues avec Vents Légers ou Favorables.

This image shows only the swells directed at Prainha dos Molhes (Escondido) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal November and is based upon 2833 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 represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the E. 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 8 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal November but 9% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 9%, equivalent to (3 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Prainha dos Molhes (Escondido) is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Prainha dos Molhes (Escondido) about 28% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 25 days with waves in a typical November, of which 8 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.
