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

This image shows only the swells directed at Kuta Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year and is based upon 34628 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW, whereas the the dominant 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 64% of the time, equivalent to 234 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 0.4% of the time in a typical year, equivalent to just one day but 28% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 28%, equivalent to (102 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Kuta Reef is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Kuta Reef about 64% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 36% of the time. This is means that we expect 365 days with waves in a typical year, of which 234 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.
