Lacerations (Nusa Lembongan) Swell Statistics, February: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Lacerations (Nusa Lembongan) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February. It is based on 2440 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 represents highest 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 largest spokes, was SW, whereas the the dominant 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 3% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal February but 23% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 23%, equivalent to (6 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Lacerations (Nusa Lembongan) is quite sheltered from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Lacerations (Nusa Lembongan) about 3% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 21% of the time. This is means that we expect 7 days with waves in a typical February, of which 1 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.
