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 through a typical year. It is based on 33220 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest 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 65% of the time, equivalent to 237 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 0.4% of the time in a typical year, equivalent to just one day but 29% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 29%, equivalent to (106 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Kuta Reef is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Kuta Reef about 65% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 35% of the time. This is means that we expect 365 days with waves in a typical year, of which 237 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.
