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

This image shows only the swells directed at Baja Malibu that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 28044 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WNW. 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 32% of the time, equivalent to 117 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal year but 1.4% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.4%, equivalent to (5 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Baja Malibu is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Baja Malibu about 32% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 318 days with waves in a typical year, of which 117 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.
