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

This image shows only the swells directed at Ekas-Outside that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical year. It is based on 34628 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW, whereas the the most common 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 61% of the time, equivalent to 223 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal year but 20% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 20%, equivalent to (73 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Ekas-Outside is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Ekas-Outside about 61% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 23% of the time. This is means that we expect 307 days with waves in a typical year, of which 223 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.
