Agnes Waters Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Agnes Waters that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere autumn and is based upon 8682 predictions, one every 3 hours. The direction of the spokes show where quality surf generating swell comes from. Five colours show increasing wave sizes. The smallest swells, less than 0.5m (1.5 feet), high are coloured blue. Green and yellow represent increasing swell sizes and red shows highest swells greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how frequently that size swell occurs.

The diagram suggests that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was E, 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 9% of the time, equivalent to 8 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal southern hemisphere autumn. Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Agnes Waters is exposed to open water swells, we estimate that clean surf can be found at Agnes Waters about 9% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 57% of the time. This is means that we expect 60 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 8 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.
