Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) Swell Statistics, Janeiro: 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 through a typical January and is based upon 2620 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing 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 10% of the time, equivalent to 3 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal January. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) about 10% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 20 days with waves in a typical January, of which 3 days should be clean enough to surf.

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.
