Newcastle - Stratts Spit Swell Statistics, Novembro: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

The rose diagram shows only the swells directed at Newcastle - Stratts Spit that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal November. It is based on 2817 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 both graphs, the area of any colour is proportional to how often that size swell occurs.

The diagram indicates that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was SE, whereas the the dominant 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 13% of the time, equivalent to 4 days. Open sea swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) are unlikely to happen in a normal November. Taking into account the proportion of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Newcastle - Stratts Spit is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Newcastle - Stratts Spit about 13% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 62% of the time. This is means that we expect 22 days with waves in a typical November, of which 4 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.
