Barvas (Lewis) Golf Statistieken, Hele Jaar: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Barvas (Lewis) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year. It is based on 34628 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 red illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was WNW, whereas the the prevailing 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 20% of the time, equivalent to 73 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 1.2% of the time (4 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Barvas (Lewis) is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Barvas (Lewis) about 20% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 58% of the time. This is means that we expect 285 days with waves in a typical year, of which 73 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
