Koeel Bay Swell Statistics, Dicembre: 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 December and is based upon 2457 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common 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 62% of the time, equivalent to 19 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 4% of the time in a typical December, equivalent to just one day but 37% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 37%, equivalent to (11 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Koeel Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Koeel Bay about 62% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 28% of the time. This is means that we expect 27 days with waves in a typical December, of which 19 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.
