Beliche Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Beliche that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 6931 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 red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, 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 biggest spokes, was NW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the N. 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 33% of the time, equivalent to 30 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 9% of the time (8 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Beliche is quite sheltered from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Beliche about 33% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 26% of the time. This is means that we expect 54 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 30 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.
