Kennack Sands Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Kennack Sands that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter and is based upon 6931 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the most common 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 19% of the time, equivalent to 17 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 8% of the time (7 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Kennack Sands is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Kennack Sands about 19% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 29% of the time. This is means that we expect 44 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 17 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.
