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

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Lacerations (Nusa Lembongan) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical June and is based upon 2786 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each 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 largest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ESE. 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 56% of the time, equivalent to 17 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal June but 56% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 56%, equivalent to (17 days). Taking into account the ratio 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 calculate that clean surf can be found at Lacerations (Nusa Lembongan) about 56% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 1.0% of the time. This is means that we expect 17 days with waves in a typical June, of which 17 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.
