Koeel Bay Swell Statistics, Febbraio: 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 February. It is based on 2102 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 show increasing swell sizes and red shows biggest 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 prevailing 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 62% of the time, equivalent to 17 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 5% of the time in a typical February, equivalent to just one day but 40% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 40%, equivalent to (11 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Koeel Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Koeel Bay about 62% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 33% of the time. This is means that we expect 27 days with waves in a typical February, 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.
