Kuta Reef Golf Statistieken, Winter: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Kuta Reef that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere winter. It is based on 7266 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 shows the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell was forecast.

The diagram suggests that the dominant swell direction, shown by the biggest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ESE. 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 89% of the time, equivalent to 81 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 1.3% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere winter, equivalent to just one day but 61% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 61%, equivalent to (56 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Kuta Reef is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Kuta Reef about 89% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 10% of the time. This is means that we expect 90 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 81 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.
