Whitsand Bay and Tregantle Swell Statistics, Junho: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Whitsand Bay and Tregantle that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal June and is based upon 2306 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was WSW (which was the same as the most common wind direction). 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 16% of the time, equivalent to 5 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal June. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Whitsand Bay and Tregantle is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Whitsand Bay and Tregantle about 16% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 57% of the time. This is means that we expect 22 days with waves in a typical June, of which 5 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.
