Ekas-Inside Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Ekas-Inside that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere winter. It is based on 8738 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red illustrates biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ESE. 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 43% of the time, equivalent to 39 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal southern hemisphere winter but 43% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 43%, equivalent to (39 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Ekas-Inside is quite sheltered from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Ekas-Inside about 43% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 0% of the time. This is means that we expect 39 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 39 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.
