Inch Reefs Swell Statistics, Janeiro: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Inch Reefs that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal January. It is based on 2372 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red shows the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WSW (which was the same as the dominant wind direction). 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 8% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 1.9% of the time in a typical January, equivalent to just one day. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Inch Reefs is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Inch Reefs about 8% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 63% of the time. This is means that we expect 22 days with waves in a typical January, of which 2 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.
