Kuta Beach Swell Statistics, Spring: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Kuta Beach that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere spring. It is based on 7252 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. 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 SW, 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 50% of the time, equivalent to 46 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 0.7% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere spring, equivalent to just one day but 23% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 23%, equivalent to (21 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Kuta Beach is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Kuta Beach about 50% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 50% of the time. This is means that we expect 91 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere spring, of which 46 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.
