Baya Reef Golf Statistieken, Winter: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Baya Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere winter. It is based on 7266 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SE. 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 43% of the time, equivalent to 39 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.5% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere winter, equivalent to just one day but 23% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 23%, equivalent to (21 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Baya Reef is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Baya Reef about 43% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 89 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 39 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.
