Ujung Genteng Harbour Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Ujung Genteng Harbour that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 34628 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows highest 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 longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant 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 73% of the time, equivalent to 266 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.1% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Ujung Genteng Harbour is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Ujung Genteng Harbour about 73% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 26% of the time. This is means that we expect 361 days with waves in a typical year, of which 266 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.
