Campbells Golf Statistieken, Zomer: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Campbells that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere summer and is based upon 7266 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 represents the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the ENE. 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 72% of the time, equivalent to 66 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal northern hemisphere summer but 31% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 31%, equivalent to (28 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Campbells is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Campbells about 72% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 1.0% of the time. This is means that we expect 66 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere summer, of which 66 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.
