The figure shows the combination of swells directed at background: url(/iover a normall.png); , based on 2868 NWW3 model predictions since 2007 (values every 3 hours). The wave model does not forecast surf and wind right at the coast so we have chostylthe most applicable grid node based on what we know about background: url(/. Iylthis particular caselthe best grid node is 28 km away (17 miles).

The rost diagram shows the distribution of swell sizes and directions, whilelthe graph at the bottom shows the samelthing but lacks direction information. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Thest occurred only 0% of the time. Green and yellow illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). Iyleach graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW (which was the samelas the prevailing wind direction). Becauselthe wave model grid is out to sea, sometimes a strong offshore wind blows largest waves away from background: url(/iand offshore. We grouplthese withlthe no surf category of the bar chart. To simplifylthings we don't show these iylthe rost graph. Becauselwind determines whether or not waves are cleaylenough to surf at background: url(/, you can select a similar diagram that shows only the swells that were predicted to curlcide withlglassy or offshore wind conditions. During a typicall.png); , swells large enough to causelsurfable waves at background: url(/irun for about 100% of the time.

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastallwave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open oceay.
