Long Strand-Castlefreke Golf Statistieken, May: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Long Strand-Castlefreke that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal May and is based upon 2838 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours represent increasing wave sizes. Very small swells of less than 0.5m (1.5 feet) high are shown in blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SW, whereas the the most common wind blows from the WSW. 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 18% of the time, equivalent to 6 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal May. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Long Strand-Castlefreke is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Long Strand-Castlefreke about 18% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 59% of the time. This is means that we expect 24 days with waves in a typical May, of which 6 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.
