Kuta Reef Swell Statistics, Agosto: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Kuta Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical August. It is based on 2480 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ESE. 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 88% of the time, equivalent to 27 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 1.8% of the time in a typical August, equivalent to just one day but 62% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 62%, equivalent to (19 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Kuta Reef is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Kuta Reef about 88% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 12% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical August, of which 27 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.
