Ano Nuevo Golf Statistieken, May: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Ano Nuevo that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal May. It is based on 2200 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 show 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 happens.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SW, whereas the the dominant 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 0.5% 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 Ano Nuevo is quite sheltered from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Ano Nuevo about 0.5% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 4% of the time. This is means that we expect 2 days with waves in a typical May, of which 0 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.
