Bellair Beach Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Bellair Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year. It is based on 27974 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NE. 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 2.0% of the time, equivalent to 7 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal year. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Bellair Beach is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Bellair Beach about 2.0% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 18% of the time. This is means that we expect 73 days with waves in a typical year, of which 7 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.
