Neah Bay Golf Statistieken, February: Golven met Licht of Offshore Winden

This image shows only the swells directed at Neah Bay that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical February. It is based on 2440 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was W, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SE. 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 24% of the time, equivalent to 7 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 8% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Neah Bay is quite sheltered from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Neah Bay about 24% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 27% of the time. This is means that we expect 14 days with waves in a typical February, of which 7 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.
