Caswell Bay Golf Statistieken, Lente: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Caswell Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere spring and is based upon 6579 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red represents the highest 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 most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was WSW, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the W. 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 1.9% of the time, equivalent to 2 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal northern hemisphere spring. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Caswell Bay is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Caswell Bay about 1.9% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 18% of the time. This is means that we expect 18 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 2 days should be surfable.

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.
