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

This image shows only the swells directed at Killard that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical October and is based upon 1240 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 largest 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 most common swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was W, whereas the the most common 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 31% of the time, equivalent to 10 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 9% of the time (3 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Killard is quite sheltered from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Killard about 31% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 14% of the time. This is means that we expect 14 days with waves in a typical October, of which 10 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.
