EaskyLeft Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at EaskyLeft that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year and is based upon 28044 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 largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SW. 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 43% of the time, equivalent to 157 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 6% of the time (22 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that EaskyLeft is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at EaskyLeft about 43% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 50% of the time. This is means that we expect 339 days with waves in a typical year, of which 157 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.
