Koeel Bay Swell Statistics, Aprile: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Koeel Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical April and is based upon 2640 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 often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SSE. 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 58% of the time, equivalent to 17 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 8% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Koeel Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Koeel Bay about 58% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 30% of the time. This is means that we expect 26 days with waves in a typical April, of which 17 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.
