Bafureira Golf Statistieken, Winter: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Bafureira that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 7765 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. 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 commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was W, whereas the the most common wind blows from the N. 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 4% of the time, equivalent to 4 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 0.7% of the time in a typical northern hemisphere winter, equivalent to just one day. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Bafureira is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Bafureira about 4% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 10% of the time. This is means that we expect 13 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 4 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.
