Alofau Gas Station Swell Statistics, All Year: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Alofau Gas Station that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal year and is based upon 33204 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 represent increasing swell sizes and red represents the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In both graphs, 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 prevailing wind blows from the E. 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 18% of the time, equivalent to 66 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to occur in a normal year but 7% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 7%, equivalent to (26 days). Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Alofau Gas Station is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Alofau Gas Station about 18% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 13% of the time. This is means that we expect 113 days with waves in a typical year, of which 66 days should be surfable.

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.
