Anna Maria Key Golf Statistieken, Winter: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Anna Maria Key that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 6925 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was NW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the ENE. 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 9 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere winter. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Anna Maria Key is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Anna Maria Key about 10% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 22% of the time. This is means that we expect 29 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 9 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.
