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

This image shows only the swells directed at Airpot Left that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year and is based upon 28044 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the E. 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 5% of the time, equivalent to 18 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal year but 0.9% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 0.9%, equivalent to (3 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds we think that that clean surf can be found at Airpot Left about 5% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 90% of the time. This is means that we expect 347 days with waves in a typical year, of which 18 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.
