Nine Mile Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Nine Mile that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions over a normal southern hemisphere winter. It is based on 8738 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 illustrates the biggest swells, greater than >3m (>10ft). In each graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell was forecast.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the longest spokes, was W, whereas the the prevailing wind blows from the ESE. 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 59% of the time, equivalent to 54 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only occur 0.8% of the time in a typical southern hemisphere winter, equivalent to just one day but 13% of the time we expect swell in the range 2-3m (6.5-10ft) 13%, equivalent to (12 days). Taking into account the fraction of these swells that coincided with forecast offshore winds, and given the fact that Nine Mile is exposed to open water swells, we think that that clean surf can be found at Nine Mile about 59% of the time and that surf is spoilt by onshore wind 27% of the time. This is means that we expect 78 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 54 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.
