Barley Cove Golf Statistieken, February: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Barley Cove that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February. It is based on 2102 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 both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell happens.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the dominant 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 4% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only arise 2.0% of the time in a typical February, equivalent to just one day. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Barley Cove is quite sheltered from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Barley Cove about 4% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 30% of the time. This is means that we expect 10 days with waves in a typical February, of which 1 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.
