Barra do Una Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Barra do Una 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 represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate 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 happens.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SE, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ESE. 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 53% of the time, equivalent to 193 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 1.9% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 1.9%, equivalent to (7 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Barra do Una is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Barra do Una about 53% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 46% of the time. This is means that we expect 361 days with waves in a typical year, of which 193 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.
