Ekas-Outside Golf Statistieken, August: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Ekas-Outside that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical August and is based upon 2976 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 show increasing swell sizes and red illustrates highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW, whereas the the dominant 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 97% of the time, equivalent to 30 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal August but 47% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 47%, equivalent to (15 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Ekas-Outside is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Ekas-Outside about 97% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 1.0% of the time. This is means that we expect 30 days with waves in a typical August, of which 30 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.
