Kilcummin Harbour Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Kilcummin Harbour that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SW. 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 25% of the time, equivalent to 23 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 8% of the time (7 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Kilcummin Harbour is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Kilcummin Harbour about 25% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 34% of the time. This is means that we expect 54 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 23 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.
