UjungWalur Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at UjungWalur 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 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing 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 45% of the time, equivalent to 164 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 0.4% of the time in a typical year, equivalent to just one day but 13% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 13%, equivalent to (47 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that UjungWalur is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at UjungWalur about 45% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 365 days with waves in a typical year, of which 164 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.
