Ekas-Outside Swell Statistics, Summer: 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 southern hemisphere summer. It is based on 7765 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the W. 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 21% of the time, equivalent to 19 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal southern hemisphere summer but 20% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 20%, equivalent to (18 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected 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 21% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 53% of the time. This is means that we expect 67 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere summer, of which 19 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.
