Ekas-Outside Swell Statistics, Setembro: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Ekas-Outside that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical September and is based upon 2880 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 highest 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 most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SE. 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 84% of the time, equivalent to 25 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal September but 41% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 41%, equivalent to (12 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Ekas-Outside is slightly protected from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Ekas-Outside about 84% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 14% of the time. This is means that we expect 29 days with waves in a typical September, of which 25 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
