Estadísticas de Olas para Doonbeg Castle, febrero: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

This image shows only the swells directed at Doonbeg Castle that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal February. It is based on 1128 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours illustrate increasing wave sizes. Blue shows the smallest swells, less that 0.5m (1.5 feet) high. Green and yellow show increasing swell sizes and red shows the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the most common swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was W, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SSW. 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 19% of the time, equivalent to 5 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 19% of the time (5 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Doonbeg Castle is very sheltered from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Doonbeg Castle about 19% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 9% of the time. This is means that we expect 8 days with waves in a typical February, of which 5 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.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
