El Emir Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at El Emir that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 6580 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, 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 SSE, 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 18% of the time, equivalent to 16 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal southern hemisphere autumn. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that El Emir is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at El Emir about 18% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 38% of the time. This is means that we expect 51 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 16 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.
