Anza Swell Statistics, Spring: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Anza that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere spring and is based upon 8052 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was NW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the NNW. 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 49% of the time, equivalent to 45 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.9% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Anza is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Anza about 49% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 35% of the time. This is means that we expect 76 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 45 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.
