Estadísticas de Olas para Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt), Invierno: Olas con Vientos Ligeros o Terrales

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical northern hemisphere winter. It is based on 6930 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 illustrate increasing swell sizes and red illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell happens.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was W, whereas the the dominant wind blows from the SW. 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 10% of the time, equivalent to 9 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to arise in a normal northern hemisphere winter but 2.0% of the time you can expect swell in the range 1.3-2m (4-6.5ft) 2.0%, equivalent to (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Nordseeklinik Westerland (Sylt) about 10% of the time and that surf is messed up by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 59 days with waves in a typical northern hemisphere winter, of which 9 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.
