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

This image shows only the swells directed at Campbells 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 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 illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). 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 longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ENE. 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 70% of the time, equivalent to 21 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal June but 34% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 34%, equivalent to (10 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Campbells is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Campbells about 70% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 1.0% of the time. This is means that we expect 21 days with waves in a typical June, of which 21 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.
