Wells-next-the-sea Swell Statistics, Maio: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Wells-next-the-sea that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical May. It is based on 2192 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell happens.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NNE, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SSW. 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 0.1% of the time, equivalent to 0 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal May. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Wells-next-the-sea is slightly protected from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Wells-next-the-sea about 0.1% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 9% of the time. This is means that we expect 3 days with waves in a typical May, of which 0 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.
