K59 and 61 Swell Statistics, Aprile: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at K59 and 61 that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical April and is based upon 2160 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 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 dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WNW. 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 62% of the time, equivalent to 19 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal April but 28% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 28%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that K59 and 61 is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at K59 and 61 about 62% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 38% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical April, 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.
