Albatross Swell Statistics, Autumn: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Albatross that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere autumn. It is based on 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 illustrates the highest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell was forecast.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing 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 21% of the time, equivalent to 19 days. Expect open water swells to exceed >3m (>10ft) 2% of the time (2 days). Taking into account the ratio of these swells that coincided with predicted offshore winds, and given the fact that Albatross is quite sheltered from open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Albatross about 21% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 15% of the time. This is means that we expect 33 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere autumn, of which 19 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.
