Arugam Bay Golf Statistieken, Hele Jaar: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Arugam Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year. It is based on 28044 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 highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was S, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SW. 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 23% of the time, equivalent to 84 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal year but 9% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 9%, equivalent to (33 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Arugam Bay is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Arugam Bay about 23% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 65% of the time. This is means that we expect 321 days with waves in a typical year, of which 84 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.
