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

This image shows only the swells directed at Balian that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year and is based upon 33204 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, 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 51% of the time, equivalent to 186 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 3% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 3%, equivalent to (11 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Balian is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Balian about 51% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 49% of the time. This is means that we expect 365 days with waves in a typical year, of which 186 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.
