Enderts Beach Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Enderts Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 8485 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows the largest 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 dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SSW. 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 26% of the time, equivalent to 24 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 6% of the time (5 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Enderts Beach is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Enderts Beach about 26% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 65% of the time. This is means that we expect 83 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 24 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.
