Swell charts and photos for 2003

  • Note descriptions are time and date eg 02 March 0000 means midnight on 1st of March (yes, the first - 01 March 2400 = 02 March 0000).
  • Thanks to Dubai Municipality for permission to use these swell and wave height images, charts and graphs.

May 2003

A good start to the month with three consecutive days of swell around 1.5m - Friday 02 May was a great day - offshore/glassy 4-6 ft faces -  and if you look closely at the photo from 02 May you can even see a couple of happy SODs in the water!

The Bay of Bengal forecast is there just for something different - could be a few waves in Sri Lanka or the Maldives out of that...

April 2003

First row of photos shows sequence over a 12 hour period on April 29, not often you get such a quick buildup during the day. This swell peaked at about 1.5m in the evening around 2100 - a good size for Dubai in April.

February 2003

One of the biggest swells I've ever seen in Dubai came through 17/18 February - peak of about 2.5m at 0400 on 18 February. Road in front of Moscow Beach was flooded. The only place I think anyone managed to paddle out was Thieves Corner where I dropped into a 10 ft face. For comparison, since DCZMP started taking readings in June 2002, biggest previous swells were 1.9m (twice) in December.
