Escolleras Golf Statistieken, Lente: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Escolleras that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere spring. It is based on 8682 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 the largest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the NW. 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 61% of the time, equivalent to 56 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere spring but 30% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 30%, equivalent to (27 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Escolleras is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Escolleras about 61% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 39% of the time. This is means that we expect 91 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 56 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.
