Baleal Reef Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Baleal Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 7252 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 red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest 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 28% of the time, equivalent to 25 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 7% of the time (6 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Baleal Reef is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Baleal Reef about 28% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 50% of the time. This is means that we expect 71 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 25 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.
