Kenneggy Cove Golf Statistieken, Lente: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Kenneggy Cove that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was W, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WNW. 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 20% of the time, equivalent to 18 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 2.0% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Kenneggy Cove is slightly protected from open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Kenneggy Cove about 20% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 37% of the time. This is means that we expect 52 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere spring, of which 18 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.
