Eclipse Swell Statistics, All Year: 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 year and is based upon 28044 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common 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 47% of the time, equivalent to 172 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 2.0% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 2.0%, equivalent to (7 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 47% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 53% of the time. This is means that we expect 365 days with waves in a typical year, of which 172 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.
