Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) Swell Statistics, Maio: 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 May and is based upon 2834 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, 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 largest spokes, was W, whereas the the most common 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 9% of the time, equivalent to 3 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal May. 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 spoilt by onshore wind 48% of the time. This is means that we expect 18 days with waves in a typical May, of which 3 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.
