Baya Reef Swell Statistics, Luglio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Baya Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical July. It is based on 2480 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the SE. 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 44% of the time, equivalent to 14 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 2% of the time in a typical July, equivalent to just one day but 24% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 24%, equivalent to (7 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Baya Reef is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Baya Reef about 44% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 54% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical July, of which 14 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.
