Barvas (Lewis) Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Barvas (Lewis) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal 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 represent increasing swell sizes and largest 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 prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was NW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SW. 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 20% of the time, equivalent to 73 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.3% of the time (5 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Barvas (Lewis) is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Barvas (Lewis) about 20% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 58% of the time. This is means that we expect 285 days with waves in a typical year, of which 73 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.
