Killard Golf Statistieken, January: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Killard that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal January. It is based on 1232 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 biggest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was W, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the SW. 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 47% of the time, equivalent to 15 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 31% of the time (10 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Killard is quite sheltered from open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Killard about 47% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 17% of the time. This is means that we expect 20 days with waves in a typical January, of which 15 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.
