Waimarie Swell Statistics, Winter: Surf with Light or Offshore Winds

This image shows only the swells directed at Waimarie that coincided with light winds or offshore conditions through a typical southern hemisphere winter and is based upon 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 largest swells greater than >3m (>10ft) are shown in red. In either graph, the area of any colour is proportional to how commonly that size swell occurs.

The diagram implies that the prevailing swell direction, shown by the largest spokes, was W, whereas the the most common wind blows from the S. 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 40% of the time, equivalent to 36 days. Open water swells exceeding >3m (>10ft) only happen 1.4% 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 proportion of these swells that coincided with expected offshore winds, and given the fact that Waimarie is exposed to open water swells, we calculate that clean surf can be found at Waimarie about 40% of the time and that surf is blown out by onshore wind 55% of the time. This is means that we expect 86 days with waves in a typical southern hemisphere winter, of which 36 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.
