Island Beach State Park Swell Statistics, Summer: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Island Beach State Park that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere summer. It is based on 7266 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 biggest 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 occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SW. 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 45% of the time, equivalent to 41 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal northern hemisphere summer but 2.0% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 2.0%, equivalent to (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Island Beach State Park is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Island Beach State Park about 45% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 41% of the time. This is means that we expect 78 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere summer, of which 41 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.
