Estadísticas de Olas para Inside Reef (Hikkaduwa), Verano: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Inside Reef (Hikkaduwa) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere summer. It is based on 8738 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 show increasing swell sizes and highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either 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 longest spokes, was SSW, whereas the the dominant 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 1.4% of the time, equivalent to 1 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal northern hemisphere summer. Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Inside Reef (Hikkaduwa) is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Inside Reef (Hikkaduwa) about 1.4% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 98% of the time. This is means that we expect 90 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere summer, of which 1 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.
