Calafia Swell Statistics, Giugno: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Calafia that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal June. It is based on 2786 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WNW. 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 64% of the time, equivalent to 19 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal June but 27% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 27%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Calafia is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Calafia about 64% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 8% of the time. This is means that we expect 22 days with waves in a typical June, of which 19 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.
