Balian Golf Statistieken, March: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Balian that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal March. It is based on 2964 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red shows largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WSW. 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 71% of the time, equivalent to 22 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal March but 26% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 26%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Balian is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Balian about 71% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 29% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical March, of which 22 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.
