Ekas-Outside Swell Statistics, Maggio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Ekas-Outside that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical May and is based upon 2696 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 red represents the highest 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 largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ESE. 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 88% of the time, equivalent to 27 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal May but 27% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 27%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Ekas-Outside is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Ekas-Outside about 88% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 4% of the time. This is means that we expect 29 days with waves in a typical May, of which 27 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.
