Lacerations (Nusa Lembongan) Swell Statistics, All Year: 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 year and is based upon 33220 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SSE. 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 31% of the time, equivalent to 113 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 0.4% of the time in a typical year, equivalent to just one day but 31% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 31%, equivalent to (113 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Lacerations (Nusa Lembongan) is quite sheltered from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Lacerations (Nusa Lembongan) about 31% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 8% of the time. This is means that we expect 142 days with waves in a typical year, of which 113 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.
