Jailbreaks Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Jailbreaks that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year. It is based on 33220 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was S, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the WNW. 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 36% of the time, equivalent to 131 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal year but 10% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 10%, equivalent to (36 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Jailbreaks is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Jailbreaks about 36% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 41% of the time. This is means that we expect 281 days with waves in a typical year, of which 131 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.
