Baleal Reef Golf Statistieken, February: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Baleal Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February and is based upon 2102 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 show increasing swell sizes and red represents the biggest 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 prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the NNW. 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 29% of the time, equivalent to 8 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 13% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Baleal Reef is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Baleal Reef about 29% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 61% of the time. This is means that we expect 25 days with waves in a typical February, of which 8 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.
