Bawa Golf Statistieken, August: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Bawa that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical August. It is based on 2976 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 show 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 frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common 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 66% of the time, equivalent to 20 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal August but 27% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 27%, equivalent to (8 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Bawa is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Bawa about 66% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 34% of the time. This is means that we expect 31 days with waves in a typical August, of which 20 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.
