Jenkinsons (Point Pleasant Beach) Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Jenkinsons (Point Pleasant Beach) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 7759 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, 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 biggest spokes, was E, 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 14% of the time, equivalent to 13 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal northern hemisphere winter but 1.9% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 1.9%, equivalent to (2 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Jenkinsons (Point Pleasant Beach) is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Jenkinsons (Point Pleasant Beach) about 14% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 15% of the time. This is means that we expect 26 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 13 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.
