Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 8475 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was W, 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 9% of the time, equivalent to 8 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere autumn but 1.8% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 1.8%, equivalent to (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) about 9% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 56% of the time. This is means that we expect 59 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere autumn, of which 8 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.
