Eclipse Swell Statistics, Spring: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Eclipse that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere spring. It is based on 6580 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the WSW. 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 53% of the time, equivalent to 48 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere spring but 24% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 24%, equivalent to (22 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Eclipse is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Eclipse about 53% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 47% of the time. This is means that we expect 91 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 48 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.
